For all you Central West End residents wondering what, exactly, has been under construction of late at Taylor Avenue between Lindell and Maryland, we've got good news -- it's a park.
Okay, so maybe it's more of a courtyard than a park, but it's still a public space where you'll be able to sit and enjoy the sunshine and, of course, the traffic.
Nicki Dwyer, the blogger behind Nicki's Central West End, uploaded a copy of the design plans a few months ago. As you can see, the idea is to have a wide stone pathway encircling a fountain.
Currently, the stone pathway looks pretty much done. Construction workers have also mapped the site for irrigation, so presumably we'll have grass growing by spring.
