New Lowell Park announced


Three generations ago Dr. Gary McCord’s grandfather operated a business on a lot he owned in the center of Lowell at the intersection of Main Street and Highway 7, across from the Lowell City Hall. The buildings on that lot are long gone, but the property, now a large, level grass-covered strip, has remained in the McCord family. And today it was announced  that Dr. McCord, who owns South Point Family Dentistry in Belmont, has made the lot available to the City of Lowell to be used as a park that will be called McCord Family Park.
 Lowell City Manager Scott Attaway described plans for the park this way: “The City of Lowell is excited for this new open space park that will feature a walking path, benches, picnic tables, and a small shade structure that will double as a performance venue as well as a picnic shelter. It will be a great outdoor spot for downtown visitors and local business employees to enjoy their lunch breaks, and this park will serve as a great programming space for small concerts, art festivals, outdoor fitness classes, and of course the home of the City’s Christmas Tree!”
