Attached below is the landscaping plan for the proposed new Straw Hat Park. Jean Mineo of the friends of the Straw Hat Park, a Medfield Foundation initiative, reported to the Medfield Foundation board at its meeting last night that her group is looking:
- for $70,000 of funds from the annual town meeting this April; and
- to fund raise $24,000 for extras and special features planned for the new park, such as the fountain.
Construction will begin in August if monies are appropriated at the annual town meeting. The really interesting extras will be included if sufficient funds are raised to allow for them. Interested supporters can reach Jean at 242-9991.
Monique Allen of The Garden Continuum donated the design services, and Jean continues to donate countless hours to making Medfield more interesting – Jean was behind the Art Boxes that now decorate the traffic control boxes around town and the Thistle project coming this May to decorate forty trees at the Medfield State Hospital.
