|Fuller Brook Park is a well-preserved linear park, established in 1899 for the dual purpose of improving drainage in flood-prone areas and providing parkland through the center of Wellesley, Massachusetts. It was an early and sophisticated municipal expression of an integrated multi-purpose civic improvement project. More than a century after it was created, Fuller Brook Park continues to serve multiple functions of drainage, open space, and pedestrian transportation while retaining its naturalistic character. Two segments near the center of the park were heavily altered in the 1980s and are excluded from the present nomination; the resulting discontiguous linear park district retains integrity of location, design, setting, materials, workmanship, feeling, and association. As a reflection of the visionary planning efforts undertaken by the town of Wellesley and its consultants, John Charles Olmsted, Warren Manning, and Ernest Bowditch, and an exemplary example of late 19th century landscape design, Fuller Brook Park is significant under Criteria A and C at the local level.
