The plaza location is the concrete pad from the previous rec center, the pad on which the current park sits will be taken out; the city is trying reuse and place the old obstacles elsewhere. We'll get a heads up when construction begins. For more pictures and news, here's the project homepage.

If this pattern of spring rain ever comes to an end, the Front Skate Plaza build should be well underway, sometime soon. Per an email sent my way on May 7, from David Ronzani, City of St. Paul employee and plaza project manager, the $350,000 build, funded by a STAR grant, will begin once weather allows for stable ground at the build site and the end of vehicle weight restrictions on nearby roads. The contractor has 75 business days to complete it.
