3CDC gave a tour of Washington Park last Saturday highlighting the progress that's occurred and what is left to be done. They are on schedule and on time to complete the park by spring of 2012 and begin a full slate of events similar to what they do at Fountain Square. The majority of money for upkeep of the park will come from income generated during these events. The park will be pretty exciting once finished. A quarter acre dog park, a splash park and play ground and a theater on top of the two acre garage. 3CDC has worked closely with the SPCA in designing the theater so the tie in between the two should be smooth.
A two acre underground garage for 450 cars is in progress and on schedule. The garage will provide parking for the school, Music Hall, surrounding businesses and residents in the immediate area.

All the monuments will be kept although a few have been moved. All the trees that are left will remain and an additional 120 trees will be added to the park.
