Notes From the Pond
I am sure you saw the news or have heard by now about the car that went into the pond on Saturday. I was there. The car slowly settled to the bottom of the pond when it went in. I got the tow company to move the car out of the pond where it would do the least damage to pond’s edge.
The car came from 33rd Street near the tennis courts. It drove over two curbs through the newly laid softball field toward the rose garden and then into the pond. It does not appear the tires did any damage to the ball field. I did not look to see if the tow trucks ran over any sprinkler heads. The vehicle may have done so in its traverse of the park. No park visitors claimed to have been injured.
