Glassboro Town Square has received a 2018 Honor Award for Landscape Architectural Design from the New Jersey chapter of the American Society of Landscape Architects (NJASLA). Glassboro Town Square is a new Borough park, designed by Clarke Caton Hintz, which has quickly become the hub of Glassboro’s Arts and Entertainment District within the existing fabric of the downtown.
The 1.75-acre park contains a variety of unique and inviting public spaces, including an art garden, performance plazas, a rolling greensward, groves of trees, a veterans’ memorial garden and a communal fire bowl. Underpinning these spaces are systems and structures designed to recapture stormwater and endure the ravages of public use for generations. The Town Square has become the framework for events, festivals, and rituals, creating a vibrant and inviting energy within a new public commons.
