Scenic Road Celebration, May 21, 2011

At Wellesley Town Meeting on April 5, 2011, Town Meeting Members voted overwhelmingly to designate Brookside Road as a scenic road!

Read about the process here.

Friends of Brookside celebrated all of Wellesley's Scenic Roads, and our newest, Brookside Road...

Sue Webb, Wellesley's Animal Officer, gave a well-attended 8:30 AM Turtle Talk, followed by a ribbon cutting ceremony, a walk down Scenic Brookside Road, and of course, a large cake! Town leaders and over 30 members of the community participated. 


Wellesley High School student Bridget Brown read the following poem by Robert Louis Stevenson:


It is not so much for its beauty that the forest makes a claim upon men's hearts, as for that subtle something, that quality of air that emanation from trees, that so wonderfully changes and renews a weary spirit. 


It was a lovely morning. Thanks to all who attended!
