The city of Westminster recently renovated the historic Belle Grove Square. The results are fantastic. Westminster leveraged a grant to do all the improvements. It was money well-spent.
I know all too well that Abby Gruber and the recreation department, Councilman Chiavacci and the common council and Wayne Reifsnider, Larry Bloom, Jeff Glass and the street department worked really hard to get the best bang for the buck.The results are great.
And just so you know, the new benches are awesome. Belle Grove Square is fascinating.
Over the years I have written several articles on the park for the Baltimore Sun - http://www.baltimoresun.com/search/dispatcher.front?target=all&spell=on&Query=Kevin+Dayhoff&sortby=display_time+descending#trb_search and last May I made two presentations on the park. One for the Historical Society of Carroll County and one for the Brethren Church. Next chance you get, go check out the newly renovated Belle Grove Square - it is truly one of the city's magical places.
