Greeley Park Sensory Garden
In 1993, the Nashua Garden club was contacted by an aide to then-Mayor Rob Wagner to inquire if the members of the club would
be interested in working in conjunction with the Parks and Recreation Department to design, plant, and maintain a Sensory
Garden at Greeley Park for the visually and physically handicapped.
Assisted by the Perkins School for the Blind in Waltham, MA, the club members designed a garden which contained plants that
could be experienced, not only through the sense of sight, but through the senses of touch, sound, and smell as well.
The garden was dedicated on July 28th 1994, the fourth anniversary of the signing of the Americans with Disabilities Act.
To commemorate the garden's 10th anniversary two lovely additions were made: an arbor and a bronze plaque depicting the
parts of an iris, sculpted by garden club member Carolyn Gaudet.
