Work on Harvey's Walk 
Has Begun

Named in honor of longtime the Historic Wooster Square board member and advocate who died in May 2013, this park -between Chapel and Wooster Streets where City Seed Farmer's market is held - can benefit us all.  


The photo at left, taken on May 13, 2015, shows recent progress on the Harvey's Walk project, with plantings and a clear path. Click here to learn more.

Wooster Square Park Benches - 

Restoration is the Key 

Repairs are clearly needed!

Over the years, the effects of weather, age, and wear and tear take a toll on the park benches, as evidenced in the photo at right. It's been decades since those in Wooster Square Park last had a complete renovation or replacement. The company that made the current benches is no longer even in business. 


So the Historic Wooster Square Association, in cooperation with the New Haven Department of Parks, Recreation and Trees, is undertaking the project to bring them back to like-new condition.
