The Trustees of Reservations 787 Shawmut Avenue New Bedford, Massachusetts 02746Official Website
The late Allen C. Haskell, a lifelong New Bedford resident and famed horticulturist assembled these six acres, the site of a traditional New England-style common, beautiful historic gardens, and one of the oldest homes in the city, over more than 30 years. Today, it’s a public park and unlikely botanical respite, blooming in the heart of New Bedford.
Stroll along meandering paths, explore the greenhouses and historic brick buildings, and linger by the beds planted with local favorites and exotic rarities. A medley of trees, Japanese maples, six varieties of boxwood, and several specimen trees, loom over artfully landscaped grounds.
