Rockport’s Millbrook Meadow and Mill Pond will have a “Grand Re-Opening” Saturday (August 17) with a ribbon cutting at 10 a.m. The ceremony will be held midway through the park. There’ll be popcorn, strolling miniature horses, Millbrook Meadow souvenir bandanas, nature explainers, music, jugglers, and Rockport’s annual Rubber Duck Race.
After two years, Rockport’s main park is ready for visitors, with a brand-new playground, a 6000-pound granite whale, loads of new flowers, plants and trees, a Native Shade Garden, and a completely new Mill Brook that is a return to the historic brook. The Rockport Garden Club has created three new gardens.
