Cleveland Park Stables

The new Cleveland Park Stables section is nearly complete and the walking trail is open. It sports these ‘horseshoes’ to park a trusty steed (bicycle).

The new park land was donated to the city for use in extending the adjacent Cleveland Park. The features honor the land’s previous use as one of the last few urban stables.

As part of the Reedy River restoration project, this section of sewer pipe will be buried, also conveniently serving as a place to dump soil freed up in the project. A section of the Swamp Rabbit trail near McDaniel Avenue is being torn up to begin work in that area.

Today is the 55th anniversary of Major Rudolph Anderson Jr’s last mission when he was shot down during the Cuban missile crisis. From a plaque at the site in Cleveland Park:

In a period of international stress he performed his duty of great responsibility with honor. He was awarded the distinguished service medal, and gave his life that America could proceed on a course toward peace without the thread of tyrants.
