When we moved to Lowell and I saw how the riverfront walk was used I said it was Lowell's front porch. It's where you can see someone reading on a quiet afternoon or strolling with a dog or eating at a restaurant open to the river or meeting a friend. The area runs from Main street along the river past the library. It's a beautiful space.
It is also where concerts are held on the stage on Thursday evenings

One of our Lowell people, Bruce Doll, is a photographer. Bruce makes it his mission to document life in Lowell. He is everywhere, documenting everything and we are all grateful to him for his passion. If you want to see what life in Lowell is then look up his FB page. We are all there. We are so used to seeing him with his camera pointed at us no one ducks. We all smile big for him.

Bruce generously said I could use some of his photos here. Like I said, he really is generous with his mission of documenting our lives.
