A small parcel along the west side of the Fox River
was deeded to the city in 1988.
This land was accepted by the city council
at the intersection of North Broadway and Prairie Avenue
for park purposes.
The parcel consists of about two-thirds
of an acre at the water's edge
within a 260- by 100-foot rectangle
plus a strip about 20 feet wide which extends
government dock line
(thus guaranteeing future access to the river).
The site is crossed by a number of utility lines 4 but the one recorded problem resulted from a break in a petroleum pipeline which runs under Broadway in front of the park area. 5
