Edgewood has been planning a new park at 36th and Meridian and the groundbreaking ceremony was on Oct. 17th. Of course, Mayor Eidinger was on hand to speak to the crowd. Then after a few words, he stepped up to put his shovel in the dirt! The weather was nice – no sun, but neither rain nor wind either. In general, the event spoke to the excitement that the community has for phase one of this new park!
