A Hamilton city project to improve American Legion Park includes making the area safer for pedestrians.

That includes a walkway leading from City Hall across the street to the park, and a remodeled intersection at the corner of South 2nd Street and Bedford that requires the current concrete and asphalt to be ripped up. The interesection is, of course, closed during the work.

The park project has also caused the Hamilton Farmers Market to move booths from 2nd Street to South 3rd Street between State and and Bedford. The Market opens this Saturday, by the way.

Work in the park itself has been centered around the "water feature" on the alley at the east side of the area.
