Save the Sound and Site Projects invite you to our newly transformed community park in Fair Haven. Start with the guided tour along the Mill River Trail led by local filmmaker, Steve Hamm, and be immersed in the storytelling of the ecosystem and history of the river. At the end of the tour, you will arrive at our transformed green space at the intersection of Haven and Exchange Streets, a site previously used as a dumping ground for over a decade. Now, with trash removed, native vegetation planted, and a new mural by artist Frenemy, this beautified park will provide benefits for the ecosystem and community alike. Learn about the process of this transformation and the science behind its design from Save the Sound staff members. Interact with the mural artist and help paint the final details of the largescale mural! Join us in making connections across nature, art, and community in our public launch of the freshest green space in this neighborhood.
Participants have the option of taking the guided Mill River tour starting at Orange Street and English Drive or meeting us directly at Haven and Exchange Street. Parking is available in the John S. Martinez School parking lot.
Please bring water and dress for outdoor exercise. The Haven and Exchange St. park is ADA accessible, however areas of our Mill River tour are not. Reach out to Melissa Pappas at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
