Beautifying Harbor Park

City residents are invited to attend a planning session for
Harbor Park with the Middletown Garden Club, the City of Middletown Planning Department, and the Conway School of Landscape Design.

Two sessions will be held:

Thursday, May 5, at 6:30 pm at the Senior/Community Center, 63 Durant Terrace, and

Thursday, June 9, at 6:30 pm in the Hubbard Room of Russell Library, 123 Broad Street.

A team of graduate students from the Conway School have taken on the project of interpreting the community’s vision of an improved Harbor Park; the project is under-written through the Susan B. Wasch Riverfront Development Fund, which is managed by the Middletown Garden Club. The goal is to increase usage of the park and expand opportunities to enjoy the waterfront through active and passive access to natural resources.  

The Conway School, located in Conway, MA, offers masters’ degrees in ecological design. Their mission is to explore, develop, practice, and teach design of the land that is ecologically and socially sustainable. The Middletown Garden Club, a 501(c)(3) organization, has worked to beautify the city of Middletown for over 100 years.

This is a win-freakin'-win for me -- I'm really eager to see Harbor Park made better-looking (and just generally better, although I'm sure I'll look back and say, "Remember when Harbor Park was so plain and simple and hard to get to?") and I've been meaning to check out the senior center that was controversial for a while.
