Cold Spring Park: Problems, Progress and Possibilities
We will tour some of the fun and unique, natural and unnatural, historical and current, features of Cold Spring Park — a 67-acre green oasis in the heart of Newton. We’ll look at some of the environmental and other challenges facing the park, and how the Friends of Cold Spring Park — with the support of Newton Conservators — is taking them on.
Our presenter is Alan Nogee, the president of The Friends of Cold Spring Park. Alan founded Friends of Cold Spring Park in 2018. He grew up in Newton Highlands, playing in Cold Spring Park in the 1960s, and moved back in 2003. Alan is a mostly-retired career environmentalist, having worked as the Clean Energy Program Director for the Union of Concerned Scientists, and with other non-profits. Alan won an award from the Newton Conservators in 2020 for his work with Friends of Cold Spring Park.
