May 2020, Gloucester, Mass.

Original concept designs for Stacy Boulevard in 1908 were by Thomas Warren Sears,  major 20th century landscape designer and Olmsted student.  Recent garden expansions were designed by Ann Gilardi Johnson with DPW for the City of Gloucester and with Generous Gardeners. The Betty Smith Garden has sprung, too!
