Triangle Park sits on a 1/3-acre parcel at the junction of Southville Road, Rt. 85, and River Street in the center of Cordaville (Southborough, MA). A welcome change transformed a former MBTA gravel yard into a tree-canopied spot to relax. The park is the result of a design competition to create a gateway to the 19th century village. It features Corten steel arcs that form a series of spaces to relax and a welcoming sign for those passing through or stopping by. The arcs reflect the historic mill-wheel powered by the old Concord River (now the Sudbury River). High granite curbs outline the former horse stable, and the woolen mills’ historic bell is once again on display.
