Wellesley will hold a public meeting on the third phase of the Fuller Brook Park Preservation Project on Thursday, Oct. 25, at Town Hall to discuss final design and permitting for the project.

Fuller Brook Park is the most popular park in Wellesley, covering 23 acres and nominated to the National Register of Historic Places for its landscape design, according to the town.

Originally developed in 1899, the park is in need of repair. The path has deteriorated and doesn’t meet standards for universal access, the stream bank is choked with invasive vegetation and the stability of the stream course is threatened, according to the town.

A master plan for preservation was completed in 2009, and now the park is about to move into its third phase of preservation.

Phase one consisted of project initiation and information gathering. Phase two was preliminary design alternatives. Phase three will focus on recommendations for design and permitting for improving the park’s paths, stream course and vegetation.

The town is seeking public feedback about how the park should be improved.

The Oct. 25 meeting will be held from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. in the Great Hall at Town Hall. A repeat of the meeting will be held on Friday, Oct. 26 from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. in the Juliani Room at Town Hall.
