Join us for a free family-friendly birthday party honoring Donald Grant Mitchell’s Bicentennial Birthday.
Donald Grant Mitchell made enormous contributions to the health and vitality of the city of New Haven. As the visionary architect of much of the city’s original park system, Mitchell worked tirelessly to ensure that New Haven residents had access to clean, vibrant and attractive public spaces. The man accomplished much in his lifetime and was endearingly committed to New Haven, his adopted home. Unfortunately, few area residents have ever heard his name, let alone have any idea who he was. This year, 2022, marks 200 years since the birth of this fascinating individual and an ad hoc committee of committed organizations has come together in the hopes of changing that.
