What started as a grass-roots all-volunteer effort a few years ago has finally been completed. City funding cranked the project into high gear and made possible the last critical piece--the ponds are now patched and re-plumbed and full of water and koi for the first time in a decade or so.
The landscaping and flower beds were in good shape for our last visit in 2006, but the empty ponds were sad. Now we just have to wait for the water lilys to spread across the surface and it will be almost exactly like we remember from our childhoods.
Not a bad way to make an old quarry useful.
A must-see, and it's free.
