Reuben A. and Lizzie Grossman Memorial Park

The handsome winged fieldstone monument you see here, 24 feet in length, was designed by Anthony T. Delmonico of Quincy, and was constructed under his direction by the Quincy Park Department. On the monument's face, etched on a medallion of pink granite, are profile likenesses of Reuben A. and Lizzie Grossman. Beneath the medallion is a message honoring the Grossmans:

"This land and its natural resources
Made available to the people of the
City of Quincy
By the children of
Reuben A. and Lizzie Grossman
In memory of their parents
Who will always be remembered for
Their humility, humanity, kindliness
And godliness"
