The lush greenery that spans from Town Hall to the Robbins Library is more than just pleasant park space. It is the intersection of three prominent Arlington names. Funded by the Robbins sisters, originally designed by landscape architect R. Clipston Sturgis, and featuring the Menotomy Indian Hunter statue by Cyrus Dallin, it is a local treasure.

The friends of the Robbins Town Garden spent more than a year researching the historic park’s past and coming up with a plan to restore its water feature and surrounding landscape. With CPA funding in hand, the meticulous work has begun. APN reporter Zach Dupont takes us behind the scenes of the restoration.
