Doing General Pershing Proud

New, 11 comments

Pershing Square—the sad little concrete park in the middle of Downtown's hustle and bustle—is getting an injection of green literally and figuratively, reports blogdowntown. The Department of Parks and Recreation is spending $190,000 to renovate the park's Palm Court, which is currently covered in dirt, statues, and weird balls from the '80s. Expect to see more grass and new drought-resistant plantings and exercise equipment. Adding to the good news is that the work will be fast-tracked, with some additions expected in six months. Hopefully, this little fix will be a precursor to the million-dollar park work promised by the soon to arrive Park Fifth skyscraper next door. [Blogdowntown]
