Under the direction of the Greenfield Department of Planning and Development and the Greenfield Recreation Department, Dodson & Flinker led a team of professionals in inventorying wetland resources and rare species, surveying the site, permitting proposed work, and designing building and site improvements to this dammed stretch of the Green River that has served as the Town’s swimming area since the 1920’s. The project required working around the many mature trees and stone walls and steps constructed in the 1930’s by the Civilian Conservation Corps as well as working in an active floodplain with listed rare and endangered species. The Project consisted of improvements to the historic Swimming Area including construction of new accessible routes and parking spaces, renovation of the playground, new steel safety/security fencing around the playground and at the swimming area’s frontage along Nash’s Mill Rd., and limited, inclusive accessibility improvements to the interiors of the Bathhouse and First Aid/Concession buildings. A modular, Ipe wood, accessible boardwalk was provided down to the water’s edge and designed to be easily taken up for winter storage. Funding was provided through the Massachusetts Parkland and Renovations for Communities (PARC) Program of the Division of Conservation Services of the Massachusetts Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs
