The Nantucket Land Bank acquired a downtown Main and Fair property in 2007. They asked Bartsch Landscape Architecture to design and manage installation of the first downtown park in over a hundred years. Some expected a grassy mound and a couple benches but with maritime materials like granite blocks and custom designed wrought iron fences, we crafted a park sensitive to the island’s historic nature and gives the public a diverse and engaging spot. The park has a fountain, seat walls, benches, and special lanterns. We drew the planting scheme from 19th century gardens.
