1st Phase of Centennial Park Grand Opening

Saturday's the big day for the "Active Recreation Corridor" part of Centennial Park. The Governor will be taking part in a ribbon cutting ceremony at 5pm Saturday. Also, check out the video on the link below for some aerial views of the park under construction.

From the city website:

Please make plans to "cut-the-ribbon" with us for the opening of the recently completed Centennial Park Active Recreation Corridor on Saturday, April 18th. The Grand Opening Celebration begins at 10:00 a.m. and will offer live music, basketball clinics, demonstrations at the Skate Park, family-friendly games and activities, giveaways and much more. The Active Recreation Corridor has much to offer families, including a complex of two full, tournament quality basketball courts, a youth half-court, a concession/restroom pavilion, a stage, as well as picnic and informal play areas west of the new Skate Park. Surrounding the active recreation elements along River Drive are streetscape and landscape borders designed to support multiple uses including spectator viewing, active recreation participant rest area, family play, and picnicking. The project received a $286,000 Iowa Great Places grant.

No Blackhawk/Forest Block post?

To clarify, I'm pretty stoked about the Centennial Park news, but I was surprised you didn't have anything up about the hotel.

Maybe the city will tear down the Dock while at it.
