The year 2013 is shaping up nicely for the Fleischmanns Village Park.
Fitting, it is, since it was one century ago that Julius Fleischmanns donated the prime real estate to the village to create the park.
Had he known that, 98 years later, the park’s splendor would be washed away in a massive flood it is certain that he would wish it restored to it’s original beauty. And while things didn’t look good for that last year, it now appears that the park may not only be restored but be even better than it ever had been.
