The city recently voted unanimously to spend $5.67 million to redevelop the Heritage Park. This small, 32-year-old park at 217 S. Main St. features replicas of a water tower and a settlers’ cabin, an antique caboose at a small railroad depot, a gazebo and an old library building. Much of the space is open grass with benches.
The open space will be reconfigured for concerts, featuring a permanent stage with a large video screen and speaker system, a parking area for food trucks, new public restrooms and a fountain feature with dancing water jets.
The park is projected to open in summer 2021.
