Landscape Architecture Students from UMass Present Designs for Kendrick Park
AMHERST, MA – December 4, 2008 The public is invited to presentations of designs for Kendrick Park by students from the Department of Landscape Architecture and Regional Planning, University of Massachusetts-Amherst on Thursday, December 11, 2008, from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. in the Town Room, Town Hall.
Students will present an analysis of the site along with scale models illustrating their conceptual designs. A discussion period will follow with comments and suggestions
from the audience..
The students have been studying the Park and developing designs as part of a Sophomore Design Studio, taught by Professor Frank Sleegers. They have met with members of the Kendrick Park Committee to gather information on the needs and desires of the Amherst community with respect to future uses of the Park.
The Kendrick Park Committee has been meeting for the past year to gather citizen input, come up with ideas for uses of the park land and develop guidelines to aid the Town Manager in the management of the park land.
The Town of Amherst recently took possession of the park after the last house was relocated to a site on Gray Street, earlier this year.
