refurbishing existing historic elements, automated irrigation, and extensive community-provided landscaping.” From the official city webpage for the site (a former substation), here’s the schematic design for the park:

    With budgets tightening, it’s good to have some places that can be enjoyed without always having to shell out more money. A great ‘public commons’ space, along with the preservation of an historical building. That’s excellent in my book!!!
    Also, I hope the community building here will include public restrooms — with a sufficient amount of open hours!

Sorry, comment time is over.
