The Friends of Farlow Park, Inc. organized to raise funds towards the restoration of historic Farlow Park in Newton Corner. The Farlow Park project will enhance, beautify and restore the City of Newton's first public park designed by George Frederick Meacham, architect of the Boston Public Gardens.
Less than a mile from the Durant-Kenrick Homestead and Grounds and the Jackson Homestead, the home of Historic Newton, this project will return Farlow Park as the jewel of the Newton Parks system. Since 2004, a core group of committed neighbors and park abutters have been committed to restoring this park.
The park restoration project includes a new bridge designed with the original Adirondack Bridge in mind. Restoring the Farlow pond utilizing the original pond basin. The pond will be filled with water from a new well. This well will also feed the irrigation system to the ball field at Underwood Elementary School. This project demonstrates the commitment of Newton Corner towards retaining the historic character and beauty of this wonderful resource.
The Farlow Park Restoration project is being funded by:
Newton Corner is the easternmost gateway into the Garden City. Visitors via bus, automobile, bicycle and foot enjoy the splendor of Farlow Park year round.
