The Big Transformation Begins

Blanchard Road

People driving along Blanchard Road are amazed to see the scale of work going on in Mary Cummings Park. The Trustees (of Reservations), the new park managers, are starting on an ambitious project to transform large areas from masses of invasive species into new, wide open meadows.

While is it scary to see construction equipment loose in the park, be assured that when the work is done the park will much more inviting, with more wildflower meadows and a new boardwalk that will allow visitors to birdwatch in the wetlands.
