Construction on new Roof Garden progressing due to recent mild weather 

With recent warm weather, construction on the new Roof Garden at Arnolds Park Amusement Park has been progressing quickly.

Marketing Director Paul Plumb explains.  "If folks have driven by, they've seen that the steel frame of that facility is almost up now, and it's making a lot better progress than one would think in early January, with the weather like it normally would be."

He notes that the new Roof Garden should be open by mid-summer.  "We're hoping for middle of summer to get that facility up and running.  You know, the next 3 to 4 weeks will tell.  We've got a 10 or 15 day stretch here where the weather looks pretty good for that side of things, so if you can get it enclosed, that makes all the difference in the world where guys can work inside and things go a lot quicker when that can happen."

The Roof Garden project is part of Phase III of the multi-million dollar restoration of Arnolds Park Amusement Park.
