The Wellesley Office Park is located on the Charles River and connects to the DCR bike path. This connection is enjoyed by residents and traveled by bicycle commuters avoiding urban roads. Upland trails through the woods were designed with porous paving to minimize run-off into the river. Boardwalks connect the site through wetlands protecting ecologically sensitive areas from compaction due to foot and bicycle traffic. Because of the location of the site, the trails and boardwalks were designed to protect the existing wetlands on the site and avoid existing vernal pools.
