WESTFIELD – The Friends of Mindowaskin Park in Westfield recently held a board meeting with Westfield Mayor Thomas C. Jardim at the home of Friends' President Nancy Priest.
The Friends and Mr. Jardim discussed many issues and projects pertaining to the park. One item of particular importance is the park's concrete overlook, which is literally falling apart. The Town Council re
cently approved $125,000 in the town's municipal budget to rebuild the overlook.
The original architectural plans from the 1930s have been found which will serve as the design for the new overlook, a Friends' spokeswoman noted. Other items discussed were the goose droppings problem and the no-feeding ordinance, the grass condition due to water drainage problems, the planting, care, and maintenance of trees, shrubs and flower beds, the Park's annual Party in the Park, as well as future symphony concerts in the park.
"Mr. Jardim was very supportive and helpful in addressing all of these items," said Ms. Priest. "We are a non-for-profit volunteer organization that works hard to insure that Mindowaskin Park is kept beautiful and properly maintained."
"Our success is dependent upon the cooperation and commitment given by the town Mayor, Town Council, Public Works Department, Recreation Commission, and the generous contributions of the citizens of Westfield. We couldn't accomplish anything without them," said Ms. Priest.
