Photo of the Day: Surprise Snow

A daily image of life in Charlestown for Wednesday, Jan. 17.

Charlestown Patch readers shared a lot of great shots from yesterday's snowfall, including this view of the Zakim Bridge from the dog park at Gavin Memorial Park in Charlestown, by Amanda Zettel.

Amanda, nice shot from the best Dog Park in Boston!

Galvin Green is not a dog park it is a highway loop ramp and it is not easy to access the site because of traffic.

Use the pedestrian light!

Mass Highway gives no permission or responsibility for its use other than a highway loop ramp although they have permitted the General Galvin statue and the September 11, 2001 Memorial. The area that is fenced off but used is because the soil came from a contaminated site.

That's what they originally thought, but the soil testing came back good, so they landscaped the park beautifully with large stone boulders, stone benches, trees strategically placed and they put up signs to pick up after your dogs!
