10009 Old Ocean City Boulevard
On August 12, 2019, following a community survey, the Mayor and Council held a public hearing during which the Advisory Committee recommended the popular choice of name as Heron Park. The documents listed below were developed before the name change, when the park had the “working title” of Berlin Falls Park.
Berlin’s newest park, Heron Park is located at the former Tyson Chicken Processing Plant. The land and buildings were purchased in 2016, when Berlin had the opportunity to take what had been, in years past, something of a sore spot in the Town. Right now this is considered a passive park, with no formal amenities or activities on site; the park features open land including two large ponds and is currently being enjoyed by walkers and bird watchers. Plans are being developed for the final use of the parkland.
In November 2017 a (formerly Berlin Falls) Heron Park Advisory Committee was formed. The committee is reviewing a number of studies and reports for Berlin and Worcester County.
The Heron Park Advisory Committee (HPAC) would like to hear residents’ suggestions regarding the visibility of, and access to the 60-acre Town property containing the former Tyson chicken processing plant on Old Ocean City Boulevard. The Park is expected to contain a combination of active and passive uses. Submit your comments to email@example.com. For background information regarding the Park please refer to the reports and studies listed below.
The following reports and studies have been completed for Berlin Falls:
