Take a break from the office, enjoy some fresh air and relax in Veterans Park, which the chamber and city officials hope to restore as a downtown asset and destination.
The chamber’s Lunch in the Park initiative begins next Thursday, one of three dates this summer when downtown employees and residents can pick up a boxed lunch from participating eateries and enjoy a break in the park, which could use a bit of an image makeover. Complaints about the park have included safety concerns, panhandling and public urination.
“All kinds of (good) things have gone on here and there’s no reason why it can’t continue,” Police chief David Mara said.
