Eyesore To Park: A Summit Street eyesore is washed away under a wrecker's ball (above) and a frontend loader (left). The cleansed area, formerly housed a junkyard. But by this time next year, it will be part of a Summit Street park. The city had owned the land since last year and the work is expected to end complaints about the trashy appearance of the lot. The park plans include closing a portion of Summit, construction of an "unstructured" outdoor theater, renovation of an existing shelter, an open game field, an asphalt track for running, roller skating or walking, a small spray fountain, 1 1/2 basketball courts, a play area with timber structures and a picnic area. Cost of the project is estimated at about $250,000, with the state paying it all. Construction of the park is expected to begin in September, with most of the work being finished this fall.
