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.
