Dive boat in Charles River

Aly watched a diver go into the Charles near North Point Park on the Cambridge side of the Charles this morning, near one of two areas pointed to by a search dog. Searchers have focused on the area around the train bridge just past North Station as they look for Zachary Marr, last seen outside the Bell in Hand downtown on Feb. 13.

The long fabled, often rumored skatepark next to the Zakim Bridge could actually be on its way. Sure, like everybody else, we always ran the annual story about the thing being near a start, but this time the Charles River Conservancy assures us they mean it: Construction is no longer imminent, it has actually started.

Passion Pit's Michael Angelakos on the river today.

The official groundbreaking for EF's new North American headquarters in Cambridge had all the traditional elements: Politicians - from the mayor of Cambridge to the governor of the Commonwealth - spoke. Silver-handled shovels were held. And Passion Pit gave a concert.

The Charles River Conservancy and the state Department of Conservation and Recreation will hold two public hearings - Sept. 19 and Oct. 10 - on current plans for the fabled North Point skatepark, which has been promised for land near the Zakim for longer than some skateboarders have probably been alive.

The people actually designing the skatepark - who have designed other skate areas across the country - will attend to hear comments and suggestions on the proposed design.
