Garden Committee

The Maudslay State Park Garden Committee, under the umbrella of Friends of Maudslay (formerly Maudslay State Park Association), is dedicated to the rehabilitation of the historic Italian and Rose Gardens at Maudslay State Park in Newburyport, Massachusetts. Since 1999, this volunteer group has been working together with the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation to preserve, maintain and rehabilitate Maudslay's remarkable gardens and designed landscape that were created in the early 1900s.

The Garden Committee is responsible for re-creating and maintaining the formal gardens and architectural plantings in the Park.  Volunteers are busy all year with the day to day work of weeding and cutting as well as researching the types of plants that would have been originally part of the gardens as well as obtaining and adding the plants to the gardens.
