A small neighborhood park has arisen on the site of surplus MBTA land and a former dumping spot. The design process was community-based, with several design presentations leading to more and more refined designs on a very limited budget.
The park is separated into two areas. The first is the site of a former livery stable. We re-created a stone foundation to evoke the footprint of that building which is long lost. The second space features Cor-Ten steel plates, placed vertically in the ground in concentric rings to symbolize the Town's industrial past. An historic bell salvaged from an old mill building fire was set as a focal point.
