SoNo tree planting project boosted by grant
NORWALK — For decades, the oft-overlooked park at the foot of 50 Washington St. sat swathed in little less than concrete and litter, but that could soon change thanks, in part, to a grant from Keep America Beautiful foundation.

The Norwalk Tree Advisory Committee secured an $18,500 “Restoration and Resiliency Grant” from the foundation in early April, which will go toward the acquisition and planting of 16 large canopy trees along the perimeter of the soon-to-be-renovated park. The committee, with the help of Norwalk Community College, Keep Norwalk Beautiful and the Norwalk Department of Public Works, hopes to plant the 4.5-caliper trees this spring or in the fall.
