This is a view of Downtown from the Whittier Peninsula Metro Park construction site, soon to be home to an Audubon Center with urban nature programs. The existing river trail is lovely and flat and shady, but we ventured up the unfinished trail to get a preview of what’s to come.
The future of the water tower is said to be in question. According to sources we encountered on the trail, the contractors there desperately want to demolish it because knocking these things down is the most fun a demolition team can have.
I say paint the thing so it’s visible from I-70.
