Washington Park

When I first posted on Washington Park, it was just starting to undergo a renovation.  The newly renovated park opened today after an amazing transformation.  What is great about the new park is how a lot of the original pieces of the park have been included with the new.  The busts of Civil War heroes Friedrich Hecker and Robert McCook are still in the park as is the cannon from the Mobile Bay campaign and the original bandstand.  Added to park are many park benches, an event lawn and stage, a dancing fountain, the Classical Music Walk of Fame, and of course plenty of underground parking.  Here are some photos taken shortly after the opening of the park.
