It's been a busy summer at Ralph C. Wilson, Jr. Centennial Park. As of late July, structural steel and roof trusses on the William Davidson Sport House are complete and scaffolding is in place. Soon, crews will pour the roof deck and the parapet along the roofline. Significant site grading has taken place, including for the east and west comfort stations allowing for the foundation to be poured, followed by the walls being erected. A large section of seawall has been removed by the EPA contractor for the soft shore river's edge. Excavation of the Water Garden will begin soon.
