Work at Graham Park

Add comments

Lots going on out at Graham Park. The Olmsted county fairboard and Olmsted county parks have ponied up some money to continue improvments on Building 31 (aka floral hall). They will be replacing floor joists in the upstairs that will enable the upstairs to be used again for events. Also the county has the money required and has bids for replacing the windows. Notice in the picture the flashing placed over the eaves of the building. That prevents water from running down into cracks in the limestone where it freezes and damages the limestone.

Also county park and highway staff put in curb cuts and small drainage basins in the area between the beer garden and building 42. This allows water to run off the parking lot into these small catch basins and infitrate back into the ground instead of ending up in the storm sewer system and dumped into the river. A small first step towards reducing runoff from the facility. Also grass will be seeded into the worked up areas and trees will be planted. Furthering the greening of graham park.
