Bruce-Monroe Park, Phase One Done

According to a source at DMPED, the initial phase of the interim Bruce-Monroe project has been completed and the park was open to the public yesterday. I stopped by to take a look, but the property wasn’t open at the time I was there. I’d be interested in knowing if anyone has been on site and what visitors’ initial thoughts are.

The second phase of the project is still underway. This phase include the building for the educational programming on the site.

As you can see from the images below, the park includes playground equipment, benches, athletic courts, and basic landscaping.
