DECATUR-The pergolas have just been put
in at Central Park and they're one of the last steps to be finished
before the park is set to re-open.
They provide shade, and can be tilted
to help create acoustics for the municipal band and other musical
performances. If they're vertical they can be used to display art.
They replace the old bandstand that was
knocked down this fall.
Since construction began, nearly
everything in the park has been swapped out.. Except for the transfer
house and the fountain
And on Friday the city will be getting
a delivery of park benches and picnic tables that will be "transfer
house red." It's likely you'll see them in the park over the
next coming weeks.
Now it's just a matter of time before
the grass is ready.
But at the very latest, the city says
it will all be done before the Decatur celebration.
