In a late-Spring 2020 vote, the Cape Cod Horticultural Society (CCHS)—which owns and maintains 8.5-acre Armstrong-Kelley Park in the village of Osterville—has approved a plan to be integrated into The Trustees, pending the completion of a fund-raising campaign.
Armstrong-Kelley Park, CCHS’s only landholding, is a garden and woodland oasis and treasured community resource, providing residents and visitors alike with a peaceful place to stroll, engaging activities, and a space for celebrations. Through this integration, Armstrong-Kelley Park will become a Trustees reservation, and its twelfth public garden, ensuring its protection from development and its ongoing maintenance and care in perpetuity. Trustees and CCHS—which has cared for the park since 1930—will begin a collaborative effort towards a comprehensive master plan for the enhancement and revitalization of Armstrong-Kelley Park.
A campaign is now underway to raise $2.25 million for restoration and expansion of the gardens, and improvements in parking and circulation, as well as ongoing community programming, property stewardship, and horticultural staffing.
