Wallbridge Garden (Millburn, New Jersey)
United States of America -- New Jersey -- Essex County -- Millburn
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, photocopies of articles, and write-ups of the property's history.
General:
The Wallbridge Garden, approximately one acre, is located at the entrance to Taylor Park in Millburn, New Jersey. The garden is an ongoing community project of the Short Hills Garden Club. The garden features hybrid tea and grandiflora roses planted in concentric rings in wedge-shaped beds hedged with boxwood. At the center is a gazebo, with paths radiating out between and around the beds. Naturalized plantings of spring bulbs, ferns and sweet woodruff, specimen trees, yew hedges and lawns comprise the rest of Wallbridge Garden.
The garden is named for Mr. and Mrs. William K. Wallbridge, whose bequest provided the initial funds for the garden club's renovation. Planning for the garden began circa 1980 during a drought that limited water use, and a trickle hose system was installed in the rose beds that uses non-potable water stored in a tank. The rose beds are mulched with shredded leaves collected in the park.
An earlier garden at that location centered on a bandstand that had become derelict and was removed. Dead trees, deteriorating plants and wire waste baskets were removed, and sturdy wooden benches and trash receptacles were installed. Paths that had been blacktopped were revived with a covering of pea gravel set with hot oil. The original Wallbridge bequest has been supplemented through fund-raising activities of the garden club.
Persons associated with the garden include Mr. and Mrs. John Taylor (former owners prior to 1924); Township of Millburn, New Jersey (owner, May 1924 to present); Robert B. Heintz (architect of the gazebo, February 1981); Short Hills Garden Club (garden designers, planters and maintainers, 1981 to present).

Type:
Archival materials
Place:
Ballard Park (Ridgefield, Connecticut)
United States of America -- Connecticut -- Fairfield County -- Ridgefield
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes a catalog sheet.
General:
In 1889, Lucius Horatio Biglow, a New York City music publisher, bought the property and expanded the colonial home with fine, landscaped grounds and fancy stone and iron walls. He called the place Graeloe. Biglow's daughter, Elizabeth Biglow Ballard donated the grounds to the town in 1964. Today, the park includes a playground, a bandstand, and the Ballard Greenhouse, used by the Ridgefield and Caudatowa Garden Clubs. According to a plaque in front of the structure, the gazebo was built in 1975 in memory of Ms. Ballard. The backland of the property has become Ballard Green, one of the town's housing for the elderly communities. Ballard Park consists of a series of small garden rooms in a large expanse of lawn, and is articulated by low growing shrubs and perennials and accented by mature shade trees. The garden is open to the public.
Person(s) associated with the garden and property include(s): the Ridgefield Garden Club; Lucius Horatio Biglow (former owner, 1889); Elizabeth Biglow Ballard (donor); and town of Ridgefield (owner).
Related Materials:
Ballard Park related holdings consist of 1 folder (5 photoprints and 2 35 mm. slides)
