Strauss Park Gets Facelift
Get ready for some exciting changes to Strauss Park! As part of the Southwest Airlines' Heart of the Community award to Grand Center, Inc. in 2015, we are making some wonderful improvements to the park. For starters, we have asked our Facebook community to vote for the color of the new furniture that will soon grace Strauss Park. Because of the abundant support for both Poppy and Turquoise, we'll be ordering a mix of both colors for the new chairs. Why pick one when we can have both? THANK YOU to everyone that voted!
