Gloucester Harbor Walk Gus Foote Dedication Sunday

Tomorrow, Sunday, at noon is the dedication of the Gus Foote Park. Following the dedication, I will be giving a mini-talk about the butterfly gardens planted along the Harbor Walk. A yummy clam chowder tasting is planned, provided by the Gloucester House Restaurant. At 12:45, we’ll Walk the Walk with Mayor Kirk. The theme of Sunday’s walk is Gloucester’s maritime heritage.

Sunny skies are predicted for tomorrow–perfect weather for strolling through the gardens while listening to sea stories. I hope you’ll come join us!

    • Thank you Carolyn. I feel very blessed that Mayor Kirk, Sarah Garcia, and the architects at Cambridge Seven had the wisdom to see that a native plants garden would be so well-suited to the overall vision of the Walk! It is my sincerest hope that residents and visitors will enjoy the garden’s beauty, and that the gardens will also become a ‘teaching’ garden of sorts.
