Gloucester Harborwalk News! From Catherine Ryan

Hi Joey,

News from the Gloucester HarborWalk.  For readers who haven’t heard, the Gloucester HarborWalk is a free, self guided path downtown for residents, employees of surrounding businesses, and visitors. The build out began this year. There are many elements happening all at once. The blooms and landscaping are already growing in.

The ramp at I4C2 is well under way and part of making the Gloucester HarborWalK image accessible for all image

Some of the Story Moment markers have been installed. Some are maps. You might also see some of the Story Moments or maps wrapped, because they need to “cure” or set for 24 hours before they’re securely installed.  Here’s architect Chris Muskopf from Cambridge Seven Associates with Sarah Garcia and Mike Hale and others up by the Fitz Hugh Lane House today. Also see pictures of Sean and Kevin from Mystic working on the installation of one Story Moment to a granite post; and an art lesson nearby. Sean and Kevin showed us an example of one of the relief icons that can be traced and collected from each Story Moment. The Story Moments also have QR codes to scan. The QRs are not “live”…yet!  Keep checking for yourself the progress as the HarborWalk continues to build out.

  • Gloucester

    By Peter Albert Todd

    I take my stroll by the oceans sand
    Amazed by how the tide smoothes the shore
    Taking pictures of the Man at the Wheel
    Paying a quarter for the harbor to explore
    Catching my breath as I admire such sites
    As the Lighthouse beyond Ten Pound Island
    Or the majesty of Hammond’s castle at night
    Or our golden beaches to bask on
    The oceans wave pounding the back shore
    With the mists of the sea spraying each passerby
    The Universalist Church with its historical steeple
    As its glowing beacon guides ships through foggy skies
    The fishing boats and Lobster boats tied to each dock
    Making ready their nets and traps for the next trip out
    Dogtown Common with all its trails and historic rocks
    Stagefort Park and its happy families of cries and shouts
    The Joan of Ark statue and Roger’s memorial stone
    All the murals inside City Hall
    The name of Lost Fishermen , loved ones own
    This my friends is the city my memory recalls


  • Have company coming certainly will be on our list of things to do
