A Massachusetts historical society that preserves the legacy of the Pilgrims is planning to build a small park to commemorate the 400th anniversary of the Mayflower's 1620 arrival.

The Pilgrim Society says it is teaming with Plymouth 400 Inc. to create a lasting legacy for the planned Quadricentennial Park in Plymouth.

The Patriot Ledger reports the groups hope to have the park open by 2020.

An architectural team from Horsley Witten has been working on preliminary designs featuring plenty of stone, with a circular gathering place and a granite viewing platform. Officials say the park will also likely include a kiosk to allow visitors to learn more about historical sites.

Plymouth 400 says it is inviting potential donors to contribute to a special campaign.
