Lincoln's "Central Park" gets some details in today's Journal Star. Actually, there aren't really any surprises. If you have followed the Antelope Valley news over the past few years, or if you have read through the AVP website, you'll recognize most of the plans. The pricetag for the park comes in at around $7.6 million, a little less than half of which is being taken care of by the 2015 Vision folks.
The only thing that bothers me about the park -- and it has bothered me since Day 1 of this project -- is the water. Will it be filtered upstream to help keep it clean? How will we assure a good presentation both during dry spells (low water) and wet spells (high water)? These aren't unanswerable questions, but what concerns me is that folks have been asking those questions for years now, and nobody official has chipped in a response.
The park will need a name. Right now a portion of the area is called Trago Park. It's not clear if that name will stick, or if the entire park will renamed. If you were to name this new park, what would you call it? Note that the easy "Antelope Valley Park" is probably out since it would be too easy to confuse with the existing Antelope Park.
