Most Lincolnites probably don't know where Trago Park is located -- south of Vine Street adjacent to the Beadle Center and the Malone Center -- but I used to live within a block of it, so I'm eager to see its new look. I'm particularly curious about the park's "sprayground", the likes of which have never been seen before in Lincoln. Mayor Beutler will turn it on today at 4:00pm.
Previously the park was a well-used but relatively relaxing place ... as long as you didn't linger too late into the night. Soon it will be bordered by a six-lane road. I wonder if it will still feel so laid back? It seems like the answer would be no, but then Antelope Park is a great park and it sits right next to Capitol Boulevard. I guess we'll have to wait and see.
