Groundbreaking Ceremony for Constitution Park

Mayor Lorraine Walsh, members of the Larchmont Village Board of Trustees, members of Friends of Larchmont Parks {FOLP} Board of Trustees and residents  from  the community,  joined in a groundbreaking ceremony this fall to mark the start of construction and renovation on Constitution Park located on Larchmont Avenue. Completion is expected in the Spring of 2020.

 

Many changes will be occurring over the Fall weeks and months, as the central gazebo will be removed. “We are currently in the process of finalizing plans for a new gazebo that will be integrated into the planned performance plaza,” noted Trustee Meegan Insley. “The 9/11 memorials within the old gazebo will remain preserved and protected during the renovations and will be re-installed in place as a spot for reflection and remembrance in our new park.’’

 

New design highlights will include a shaded French inspired promenade running the length of the Park. A common area for public concerts and performances will be arranged and a sculpture garden and children’s grove will be created.

 

Materials for the promenade, allees, sculpture garden and children’s grove will be delivered in the coming weeks, and the FOLP will work closely with the Village to keep the community informed on the progress this Fall and Winter.

 

Friends of Larchmont Parks, is an all volunteer,  501 {c} {3] non- profit organization, led by Laura Rosenthal, President, Darren Moss, Vice President, Leah Dillon, Treasurer and Alexandra Pitney, Secretary. Trustees are Meegan Insley, Lynn Janson, Laura Lavan, Deborah Maher, Laura Woefel, and Laura Wright-Treadway.
