Where’s the Water?

The Route 322 road construction project deposited large amounts of silt in Concord Creek upstream from the Park. Between 2017 & 2019, this siltation moved downstream, stopping the operation of the 315-year-old Mill & halting the 60-year tradition of trout fishing in the ponds.

We are in the process of planning & permitting for the silt to be removed in 2023 so that we can reopen the Millrace & refill the Ponds. This is a massive & complex project — we thank you for your patience as we continue to work toward remediation.
