Clark’s Way is a 600 foot long, four-acre, pedestrian-only district within the Eastern Area of the University of Massachusetts Amherst campus. It is a design proposal that resurrects the historic "passage" between the center of Amherst and the heart of the Massachusetts Agricultural College. It replaces what had evolved into a haphazard automobile-oriented landscape. Clark’s Way includes The Path and The Wall which defines it. It is bounded on the east and west by the facades of historic buildings and Durfee Gardens as well as a series of new courtyards and gathering spaces. It is anchored on either end by new pedestrian plazas.
