Planning Prospect Park
A public meeting is being held to talk about updates to Prospect Park.
Get in on the plans for Prospect Park.
There is a feedback meeting open to the public scheduled for Thursday, March 14, at 7 p.m. in meeting room B of the Municipal Office Building.
Participants who attend can see the existing conditions map of Prospect Park, learn more about the "Garden of Remembrance," future cemetery and potential well, and also provide feedback on the draft maps and plan.
Prospect Park is located between Boylston Street and Prospect Street, and a Master Plan working group has met five times since June 2012 to discuss updates.
Kristen Las, town planner, said that a fact sheet will be provided with background on the park, to participants at the meeting.
An excerpt of the fact sheet: "An article on the 2012 May Town Meeting warrant requested that an allocation be made to explore additional well creation in Prospect Park. At that time, some Town Meeting Members were uncomfortable funding the well exploration without knowing where on the property this would occur. The article was defeated. Several months after the 2012 Town Meeting, the Town Manager convened a working group to explore the existing conditions at Prospect Park and create a Master Plan for uses including, but not limited to walking trails, cemetery expansion, existing wells, new wells and other passive recreational opportunities."
