  • History


    Spy Pond Park Renovation
    Designed by CRJ Associates, landscaping architects
    Carried out by Heimlich Landscaping and Construction

    What they did:
    • Replaced crumbling retaining walls and fortified most of the rest of the shoreline with coir logs planted with native shrubs.
    • Created erosion-proof access points with impressive boulders.
    • Repaired drainage from Pond Lane and the gullies it had created.
    • Re-graded the middle area of the park so that it drains toward the bike path.
    • Built a boat ramp which provides acceess for emergency craft and allows pleasure boats to be launched without damaging the shoreline.
