• Rotary Park

    From Joy Beeson@21:1/5 to All on Thu Sep 24 22:27:28 2020
    I've found out why the walkway around the water fountain at Rotary
    Park was so wide that when I first viewed it from the pavillion, I
    mistook it for parking.

    It *is* a parking lot. According to today's Ink Free News, three
    bike racks were installed today. And the photgraphs show actual
    functioning bike racks, not dish drainers.

    The ribbon cutting is tomorrow. The pictures still don't show any
    signs saying "Rotary Park" or explaining the significance of the "cog monument". Perhaps in the years since it was installed, the
    significance of the monument was forgotten. The article says that the groundbreaking was in September of 2017.

    When I first saw the park, I noticed with delight that it had a water
    fountain of the latest fashion. The article describes it as:

    The park also contains a unique water fountain.

    “You can drink out of the fountain or fill a water bottle there,”
    Taylor said. “But there’s also a basin at the bottom where your dog
    can drink out of it.”

    Just like the fountain installed in Winona Lake Limitless Park a few
    years ago. The Winona fountain is not as sleek.
