Haskell Park Restoration Begins

TSM

It’s barren right now, but by next spring, the Allen Haskell property in the North End will be restored to it’s former beauty.

Earlier this year, the Trustees of Reservations acquired the property off of Shawmut Avenue, and went to work Thursday cleaning up the land.

Trustees Southeast Regional Director John Vasconcellos says upon it’s completion, the park will be a welcoming public space.

Vasconcellos says two of the $3 million to restore the property has been raised, and is being used to plant trees and gardens.

The property was once the private home and business of Allen C. Haskell, the renowned horticulturist who passed away in 2004.
