Results and Accomplishments
Nearly an acre of salt marsh and upland plants now ﬂourish at the concrete plant, and the Parks Department operates a nursery there for other river projects. Partner groups host festivals, launch boats built by high school students, and use the three-acre site as an outdoor classroom and research station. Hundreds of people visit the site by canoe and on bike tours.
Construction of the park begins this year. The park design implements plans developed in community visioning sessions— including further salt marsh restoration—and creates a key link in the greenway that will soon run the full length of the river.
