Work has stopped on the improvements at the foot of the Junction Bridge(La Petite Roche plaza). Instead the city has moved to the west and has started work on a new sculpture garden. Seven new sculptures will be included in the new garden. Work is hoped to be finished for the upcoming Sculpture at the River Market show and sale October 16-18,2009.

The Democrat/Gazette reported that work on The Rock project was halted after excavation dug into what proved to be a brown field area.

The area has been cleaned up but it is not a brownfield. This area was to be finished around this time but has not. The city had a choice to finish it or work on the new sculpture garden. I would guess they think as long as the area around The Rock is finished by next year's Riverfest everything will be ok. My information came from a worker from the Parks Department yesterday.

This was the area before work began.

Brownfield was a poor choice of words by me. What was found was a high level of lead in a confined area.

Work continues on the walkway under the south entrance of the Junction Bridge. Looks like a good deal of work to be done if it is to be finished by Riverfest.

The following picture shows the "Little Rock". This piece was moved from City Hall where it has been on display for many years. It is the rock standing upright to the left of the tree.

New addition at the Nature Center.

I've got to say I've been impressed with the sculptures that Little Rock has. That's one thing lacking in my area. And what few there are, I just haven't found particularly appealing.
