Bricks And Plants Bring Tribute Park Closer To Opening Day


The metamorphosis of the Tribute Park site continued this week as the contractor, Quigg Development Corporation, and a handful of volunteers began installing bricks and plantings. Bricklaying started in the center and will work its way out to the edges over the next two weeks. All of the lighter sand areas shown will be covered with brick walkways.
