Location: At the corner of Rogers Street and Merrill Street, Lowell. DirectionsGet Involved
The park site is the former location of a 17 unit tenement house that completely covered the lot. The city of Lowell took the property for non-payment of taxes and demolished the building. In 1999 the Lowell Parks & Conservation Trust acquired an adjacent house on a 2,782 square foot parcel land from the FDIC. Demolition of the house expanded the park size and created sloped access to the river bank.
Features within the park include a granite wall, which is the remains of the foundation from the former tenement. An ornamental cast iron fence was reproduced from remnants of an historic fence found on the site. The fence features a leaf pattern sheltered within an inverted heart. A pergola, which was donated to the Trust, provides vertical interest and will support ornamental climbing plants or grape vines. Granite benches, paid for by private contributions, provide seating along a curved pathway and overlooking views of the Concord River. The park also has solar lighting to provide additional security.
