Some of the original landscape plantings still grace the park, but around the edges wildness had set in over the years. By 2005 the upstart growth was so thick that it was barely possible to glimpse the river. Maple saplings, poison ivy, Oriental bittersweet vines and Japanese knotweed were rampant. Finally, volunteers stepped in to clear saplings and undergrowth, and the town's Department of Public Works effected some repairs.
