New Community Beautification Project – Chatfield Garden in Warinanco Park

Posted by on Sep 19, 2018 in News and Events

Help is needed at the Chatfield Garden in Warinanco Park, located in Roselle/Linden/Elizabeth.  Assistance is needed with garden maintenance such as weeding, deadheading, and removal of excess perennials that have spread beyond their allotted space.


Master Gardener Cindy Coppa works in the garden on Thursday mornings and will direct volunteers regarding maintenance priorities and demonstrate “how-to” if needed.  If you are interested in working on this project, please contact Cindy at 908-906-6386.  Call or text.


Work will continue until the end of the season (end of November or early December) and will resume in April. Master Gardener volunteers can work on other days of the week after becoming familiar with the garden.  Excess perennials that are removed can be used for the MG spring fair fundraiser.  This should be coordinated with Joanne Krueger and the demo garden schedule.  Plant removal can only happen when Cindy Coppa ispresent.


The Chatfield garden’s beds form a very large octagon and were originally designed by the firm of Frederick Law Olmsted, the “Father of Landscape Architecture.”  It is presently a perennial

garden and still a work in progress.


To get to the garden:  The address for Warinanco Park is Park Drive, Roselle NJ  07203. Enter the park on St. Georges Ave./Park Ave., (across from Park 27 Diner) bear right around the lake and over asmall bridge.  Turn into first parking lot on left.   The garden sits back

from the lot, surrounded by a Yew hedge.


Here is a map of the park.
