Ecologically sustainable park behind Honan Allston library

Allston/Brighton TAB reports

Allston-Brighton residents received a first look at designs for a new ecologically sustainable park behind the Honan-Allston Library at the July 8 meeting of the Harvard-Allston Task Force.

The design, which was created with residents’ suggestions in mind, was generally well received by those who attended the meeting, though residents asked for the inclusion of a much-desired water element to the park………..

Sustainability was a key factor in the overall design, said Laura Solano, a principal for Michael Van Valkenburgh Associates.

Officials from Harvard University and MVVA stressed that the presentation did not represent the park’s final design.
