On the corner of West and School Streets the river is open and runs along a public parking lot. This stretch of river has been completely urbanized to the point that the river bottom is a mix of cement and asphalt before it enters the aqueduct. With habitat improvement to the river itself, this area could become Bristol’s version of the Bridge of Flowers found in Shelburne Falls, Mass. Both sides of the river bank along with the bridge could be utilized. This would tie in nicely with the city’s west end study.
