Bandstand project expected to get started by summer

Posted: Thursday, March 26th, 2009 at 7:25 am

A plan to renovate the city of Washington’s Central Park Bandstand is expected to get underway by the end of this summer. That news comes after former Washington resident John Jackson made a 175-thousand dollar donation to the project. Washington Parks Superintendent Tim Widmer says one of their goals is to keep the bandstand’s historic look. Widmer says even though Mr. Jackson’s generous donation gives them enough money to start on the bandstand, they’ll continue to raise money for other Central Park needs. He says that includes maintenance funds for the fountain and money to remodel the bathrooms. The volunteer committee spearheading the project will meet this evening at 7:00 at the Washington Public Library.
