Triangle Park

Metro Boston

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.

Corten Steel in the Landscape

The concentric raised planters and welcome sign reflect the industrial economy of the historic site. The steel takes on a rusty patina but corrodes very little thereafter.

Vistors' Appreciation

The MBTA still serves the location, and thousands of commuters come to park each workday. Now they’re greeted with an attractive, more cared-for entry to the community.
