Chappaqua Pocket Park

New York City has its Central Park – an oasis of flowers and green where one can escape the noise and busyness of the city.  Chappaqua has its own Central Park called the Pocket Park, located right in the middle of downtown. It, too, is an oasis that a surprising variety of people visit to rest, look at the garden, eat their lunch, enjoy their coffee, meet friends.  

The Pocket Park was planned nearly thirty years ago by one of the Chappaqua Garden Club members who was a professional garden designer. It has been tended by CGC members, most faithfully, by Anne Boyd and her husband. A number of club members have helped over the years but now it is time for a systematic overhaul of weeding, pruning and planting.  

We need a dedicated crew of “park rangers” who will commit to just two (2) hours a month from spring to fall.  We anticipate that small groups of 2-4 will mutually decide which day of a particular week and at which hour they will meet to do what is needed.  There is a lot of FLEXIBILITY to accommodate the members of each mini-group.  There will be an experienced gardener on tap to indicate what needs to be done and to help novices to identify plants and weeds. No experience is necessary. Think of it as a free horticultural course where you can have fun and conversation while you are sprucing up a community gem. Think of the pride you will feel as we complete different phases.

There will be an organizational meeting at the Park after the Plant Sale. Please contact Anne Boyd or Judy Leheny for further information as to how you can help.
