ALBION – A stone bed for flowers in Albion’s Waterman Park was dismantled today over safety concerns.

The stone structure was added to the park about a decade ago. It had some pointy rocks edges on top that were seen as a liability concern, a DPW worker said today.

The stone had also sunk and shifted a little. It was built on a site without a solid foundation.

The village plans to makes a small garden at the site.

This photo from Aug. 28, 2014 shows the flower bed during the summer. A historical marker, noting downtown Albion is on the National Register of Historic Places, was placed in Waterman Park in 2014.
