Selectmen Chairman David Neill said people have complained about the park for many years, and he’s glad something is being done.
“The best I was able to do was to put a picnic table on it,” he joked.
Neill said the plan will enhance the neighborhood and will make the park a contemplative place to enjoy a good view and conversation.
“This is probably the best idea I’ve heard for that property,” Neill said. “A strolling garden is a marvelous idea. Not just because it is a thing of beauty, but I also think it fits in with the neighborhood well.”
