2023 Greenspace Report

Dover Beach is a scenic park with views of the marshes along the Quinnipiac River. The park’s benches, shade, views, and playground and splash pad make this a popular community gathering spot with a welcoming, familial atmosphere on hot days. A core group of volunteers – Christel, Pat and Joyce – made wonderful progress at Dover Beach this summer! Their passion for the park shows in everything they do, and this year they tackled a swath of broad goals. They added to the plantings in the Children’s Butterfly Garden, spent long hours doing invasive species suppression in the Urban Oasis, and established a Welcome to Fair Haven sign at the park’s entrance off Middletown Road.
