A new park in Cos Cob is under construction, and it will be home to a very special 9/11 Memorial.
"When the Town advised that this was going to be a park setting, the Board went to them and said, 'We would love our Memorial to go in there.' The Town has approved initially the structure of the Memorial," said Gervais Hearn, the Memorial's Director of Development.
The Memorial will over look the water, and will have benches and a walking path around it.
"They will be two hurricane proof glass towers about 12 feet high and 20 inches wide without he names of the 32 residents who had ties to Greenwich who lost their olives on 9/11," said Hearn.
The new Cos Cob Park will be open to the public, making it the perfect place for this Memorial
"I think it is important if people are coming to visit that they have the ability to come here. Certainly, there are people traveling around Greenwich, to and from New York to Boston, who might think to stop and enjoy the park and the Memorial," said Hearn.
The park is planning to be finished by fall of this year, and the Memorial will go up next Spring.
"It's directly across from the Cos Cob Train Station. That's what's the beauty of it, it's so easily accessible," said Hearn.
