Because of the soil contamination left by the service station, this land could not be sold. The owner decided to keep the land and allow a park to be installed, but only for 10 years. This puts a damper on things from my point of view, but at least there will be ten years of beauty.
This week as I passed by, I noticed that sod had been installed, flagstones placed around the central sculpture, and paths filled in. Some struggling perennials are going to be fine I think once the drought and excessive heat pass.
There are several new sculptures added. I understand 3 of the sculptures are installed on a rotational basis.
There seems to be some sort of pergola idea going on above the stone benches. There was talk of misting being installed, an idea I’m not sure about. I like simple and not too many gimmicks.
The entryway to the cinema appears to have been cleaned up a bit. Access to the park is still closed.
Here’s what can be seen today.
To be continued!
