Sensory Garden

In 2009, the Shrewsbury Garden Club formed a non-profit organization, The Shrewsbury Fragrant Garden, Inc., whose purpose was to build and maintain a sensory garden for the visually impaired. After an extensive search for a site to build the garden, which included both Veterans Inc. and Dean Park and several plans, town officials asked the garden club to take over the maintenance of the garden at the side entrance to Town Hall. Realizing that this garden would be the ideal place for a sensory and healing garden, the Shrewsbury Garden Club eagerly accepted the request, and have been cultivating and transforming the site ever sense! Several successful fund-raisers and contributions have provided the funds to replace and replant the necessary plant material, and to maintain the garden well into the future. With a generous contribution from the Shrewsbury Lions Club, a fountain was installed in the Spring of 2018, as well as several new  memorial benches donated by residents.  A formal Dedication Ceremony took place on June 16, 2018. The garden has become a beautiful asset to the town, exemplifying the Shrewsbury Garden Club’s commitment to community beautification. (Click on pictures to enlarge them.)
