In 2002, after a lengthy search process, Branch Brook Park Alliance engaged the landscape architecture firm of Rhodeside & Harwell to prepare a Cultural Landscape Report, Treatment and Management Plan (CLR) for the park. Taking several years of research to prepare, this multivolume work provides a detailed roadmap for how the restoration and maintenance of the park should proceed. Projects include the restoration of waterways, plantings, pathways and structures in keeping with Olmsted’s vision for open bucolic landscapes to serve as antidotes to the overcrowded, unhealthy and unsightly conditions of industrial urban life. Click on the following links to access these volumes of the CLR.
