The Boardwalk and Promenade Park on Nashawannuck Pond is the latest revitalization project in downtown Easthampton.
On December 18, 2013 the Easthampton City Council voted to appropriate $645,164 to pay costs of completing the design, permitting, bidding and construction of the Nashawannuck Pond Promenade.
$165,386 was appropriated from CPA Open Space Funds and $79,778 from CPA Undesignated Funds. $400,000 was borrowed to pay the balance of the costs, to be reimbursed from a MassWorks grant through the PARC program. The area will become part of the Parks and Recreation Department who will oversee maintenance.
The boardwalk at Promenade Park was dedicated on June 13, 2015, kicking off the 2nd Annual Cultural Chaos.
