Maudslay State Park Association receives $16,000 for restoration

The Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation has awarded the Maudslay State Park Association $16,000 in matching funds for restoration and maintenance of the park’s flowering reflection pond, according to an announcement released by state Representative Michael A. Costello and state Senator Kathleen O’Connor Ives, both Democrat from Newburyport. The Maudslay State Park Association has raised an additional $8,000 for the project, which will help to return the pond to its historic significance, Costello said. “This money is essential in keeping Maudslay clean for the enjoyment of everyone,” O’Connor Ives said. Included in the project are erosion mitigation and sedimentation control, plantings, new trees, basins, and diversions to ensure the health of the pond. The DCR’s Partnerships Matching Funds Program accepts applications from park advocacy groups, civic and community organizations, institutions, businesses, non-state government partners, and individuals with an interest in improving the Commonwealth’s natural, cultural, and recreational resources. The DCR considers applications that will provide a match of non-state funds for capital projects in state parks. The DCR assigns a project manager to each approved project who oversees it in consultation with the partners making the contributions.
