Delay that trip to Big Spring Park for now as the latest round of fixes for the channel begins this week.
Hoping to spend an afternoon in Big Spring Park this fall? Better change those plans, because a project to complete renovations of the spring channel from the water treatment building has just begun. The project, which was approved earlier in the year in hopes that it would get started this summer, is now getting underway. Along with new concrete poured into the channel bottom and a replacement foot bridge (not the historic stone bridge,) the park is also expected to soon get updated landscaping design and other features to make it more community-friendly.
