I went to Bodi group this week and asked about the status of the Children’s Park. One of the planners there said it won’t be ready this summer but are planning to open some time in the fall. Sounds like October at the earliest. They are building an indoor entertainment complex and food court, which is expected to be open next winter.
I did go past the Children’s Park a couple of times. Even though its all fenced off you can see that some progress has been made. A large Ferris wheel looms over the park and you can see the roofs of some buildings.
Looking at the sample plans they have in their office, it’s clear that the park will not occupy the entire dimensions of the old park. It looks like its maybe only 40% of the old park, occupying the south east quadrant of the park.
Meanwhile, progress also continues on the Shangri-La hotel, which is being built on the north east corner of the old park. An enormous mound of dirt looms over the fence.
