Garden Notes

Elizabeth Gordon Smith Park Restoration

In collaboration with the Gloucester DPW and a design by Ann Gilardi Johnson, ASLA, Generous Gardeners is making dramatic improvements to the Elizabeth Gordon Smith Garden surrounding the Walter Hancock ‘Triton’ sculpture on Stacy Boulevard.

There will be flowering trees with woodland flowers underplanted, and annuals and perennials in new beds surrounding the statute. There will also be additional teak benches, four new lampposts, irrigation and a granite-lined path to connect to the main Stacy Boulevard promenade.

This garden is actively under renovation. Most of the garden has been planted but it is still in transition. The irrigation, pathways and lighting have been installed. Beautifully in bloom with roses, dahlias, and many annuals, the work will continue to complete the design.
