Edwin Watts Southwind Park plans

Edwin Watts Southwind Park plans

I had some trouble with glare from the flash,
so I tried photographing the drawings from an angle.

Oddly enough, this angle seems to draw the viewer into the plans better than a direct view.

I also boosted up the color saturation in Photoshop for these images.

This one is from what I think is the Southwest corner of the property.

BTW, the Park District will take donations for the park.

For instance, if you want to donate a water fountain, or tree, or
whatever...give them a call. I like the idea of a doggie water
fountain, like what they have at Washington Park.

I'm also hoping that someone will donate that swimming pool facility.
