New - Symphony Park in Hadley's home town, Somerville, Mass.

The city of Somerville, Mayor Joseph A. Curtatone,  is in the process of creating a beautiful and functional new 8,000 sq. ft. park to honor the Hadleys - not only Henry Hadley, but also his father Samuel Henry Hadley, brother Arthur Hadley, and hopefully his grandfather Samuel Dexter Hadley and mother Mary Conant Hadley. (details are still being obtained).

Ground was broken in October of 2014. The park occupies land on Pearl St.  where the Conants and Hadleys once had a home.

Details of the planning process and current design can be found on the City of Somerville design website  (click on links to the right of the text to see slides of the design details).
