2017 Greenspace Report

Watson and Basset is a popular place to stop and rest for those on the Farmington Canal trail and in the neighborhood, due to its shade, bench, and inviting nature. The park is one of the oldest vacant lots and is still managed by one of its founders. This summer, the group planted perennials and shrubs, watered, and stewarded the site. The big project was repairing and painting the fence in bright bold colors, which was spearheaded by the kids.
