Glassboro Town Square

Glassboro Town Square

Located at the heart of downtown Glassboro, the Town Sqaure is a new civic space for Borough events as well as daily passive recreation. In addition to a great lawn, it hosts a Veteran’s Memorial at the prominent intersection, an arts garden which includes display space for sculpture or art events, a plaza which will house a temporary ice rink in the winter and public markets or car shows in the summer, a stage, fire pit, bench seating and a tranquil tree grove.

The Square’s recreation features are closely intertwined with green infrastructure components. In addition to the lawn which will infiltrate stormwater, the tree grove is composed of granular paving, and the plaza – a former right-of-way – is composed of permeable pavement. Additionally, grading within the Square was designed to allow for stormwater to enter the planting beds and help feed the native plant species.
