† Grozier Park

Edwin and Alice Grozier, who lived at 160 Commercial Street, assembled numerous properties around their home, including the Central Wharf, into an area known as Grozier Park, which was “outfitted with park benches, walks and cast-iron urns with flowers.” In 1964, there was a proposal before the town to purchase the land for $75,000 from Reginald W. “Reggie” Cabral to create the new Kennedy Park (President John F. Kennedy had been dead less than four months), which would have included a public beach and a playground. When that deal did not go through, Cabral developed the Boatslip Resort on the site.
