While I was in England, work was done to Putnam Park II and the Boccelli Garden. The town has collaborated with a private donor to enhance the park. A new retaining wall has been added to the park to create a level space for a terrace next to the Boccelli Garden.
The apple tree that Michael Boccelli planted probably 70 years ago has been limbed up and shaped. Along the river, a new iron fence replaced an unsightly chain-link fence.
A new bluestone terrace has been added adjacent to the Boccelli Garden.
Soon work will be done to re-grade the park and planting will be added to the park on the opposite side of the new terrace.
