Newburyport Waterfront Park

Harriman was hired by the City of Newburyport to develop a comprehensive re-design of Waterfront Park, located in the heart of historic downtown Newburyport. Harriman’s work began with an extensive community participation effort to build consensus around the preferred uses and characteristics of the park. The design dramatically expands landscaped areas and open spaces from the existing condition and connects the park to the historic downtown. The design provides programmed elements for events, performances, historic interpretation and public art, and a small café.
