  1. I think it would be really helpful to have a detailed map of Branch Brook Park for people wanting to come to the events. It’s a large park and if you’re not all that familiar it’s difficult to know where to go. The farmer’s market isn’t really visible from the street. A site map showing exactly where it is may help to have greater numbers showing up. There is only a very vague map on the Branch Brook Alliance website…not very helpful at all.
