New Fitchburg park takes shape -- and adds more protected acres

The Gateway Park in Fitchburg is now under construction (see earlier post about this new park and conservation restriction by clicking HERE). The park is also growing with the addition of 7 acres of woods that were recently purchased -- and soon to be transferred to the City -- by The Trustees of Reservations working through its affiliate Massachusetts Land Conservation Trust. Like the Gateway Park, this additional land will be protected by a conservation restriction co-held by The Trustees of Reservations and North County Land Trust. The project was made possible by support from Fidelity Bank, a Conservation Partnership Grant from the Massachusetts Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs, and the Fields Pond Foundation.

Community Conservation Specialist, Dave Outman, is seen below checking on the progress of the Gateway Park construction.
