Yorkville Park

Another shot from yesterday's park which is called Town Hall Square Park since it is on the site of the original Yorkville townhall which opened in 1860 but was destroyed by fire in 1941. The park is filled with trees and those great planters but 1 corner has a lounging area popular for eating lunch etc. This section surrounds the sculpture "Reaching For the Clouds" by artist Jean-Pierre Morin which was installed in 2005. The pic also gives a hint of all the condos that have sprung up in the area.
