Beautifying Russo Park in Honor of Harvey Koizim

"Harvey's Walk"


An initiative is under way to enhance, in honor of the late Harvey Kozim, Russo Park - the area abutting De Palma Court that hosts City Seed Farmers Market every Saturday. To be called Harvey's Walk, the site, pictured with the first state of plantings on our News Page, will be beautiful, and a joy to be in. Note that this venture will not affect the operation of the Farmers' Market. All will be as before.


Approved in fall 2014 by the New Haven Historic District Commission, project is in the fund raising stages.

Community initiatives that Harvey, an attorney, was actively involved in include establishing City Seed Farmers Markets, the Community Gardens and Sunday In The Park for Edgerton Park Conservancy, Historic Wooster Square Association the Cherry Blossom Festival, Conservancy and lots more.


Designed by David Moser, Landscape Director for the City of New Haven, whom Harvey worked with on the irrigation system for Russo Park, Harvey's Walk will feature shade-loving shrubs under the tall white-pine stand. There will be color and mass year-round. And places to sit. Coming later will be chess tables and tables and chairs such as are appearing to great acclaim on the New Haven Green.


Please support this worthy and appropriate addition to our Wooster Square.
