Open Space and Recreation for the Swampscott Community.

The Swampscott Rail Trail is about community. It is about a 2-mile linear park throughout our town for every neighborhood, every resident, and every age. The Rail Trail is about new and better ways to connect our neighborhoods and our residents.

Construction of the first segment of the Swampscott Rail Trail begins mid-June 2020 and is expected to be completed by the end of June. The design and engineering of the remaining segments is completed and construction funding is being sought for these segments. You can view the Project Status or read the Latest News below for more information on the status of the project. We also have an extensive list of Frequently Asked Questions covering all aspects of the Swampscott Rail Trail.
