> Friendship Park
Will the museum remain in place and open?
Yes. The museum will remain in place and will be open before,
during and after the construction phase.
Will the museum kitchen remain open during
When it rains do you expect water will be
standing in the future park?
Yes. Drainage under the park will be established to remove
rain water, but during and after rainfall, water will likely
accumulate in the park for a short period of time; just as
it does around the valley. This method of ground water recharge
is good for the environment.
Won’t the standing water cause a mosquito
The drainage is designed to remove water within 18 hours
which should prevent standing water that would support mosquito
reproduction, so we do not expect problems.
Will there be any playground equipment for
Yes. The park committee has recommended separate playground
equipment to provide places for younger and older children
Have you found any artifacts while digging in the Friendship
Yes. A number of things have been located that we believe
were buried by Mr. Terry Leonard in the past. Care will be
taken to locate and remove these prior to extensive dirt removal
and to prevent damage to any historic items that were buried
in the original park.
