HUNTINGBURG — A groundbreaking ceremony will be held Tuesday, Sept. 26 to signal the start of construction work on Market Street Park.

The ceremony will start at 10 a.m. on the park’s Fourth Street side.

The new Market Street Park will be located east of Old Town Hall between Third and Fourth streets. Once completed, the park will have many features, such as a plaza with tables and seating, a lawn terrace with seating, a performance pavilion, a terrace with seating, a market pavilion with a walkway and curbless parking on either side, a walkway that will be called a legacy court, a legacy wall, a south lawn and a ring-shaped walkway that will have features like a pergola and community swings.

The park’s $4 million cost will be covered by the Indiana Office of Community and Rural Affairs’ Community Development Block Grant money appropriated to Huntingburg through its Stellar Communities designation, local tax incremental funds, economic development income tax funds and private monies committed by local partners.

Because of the massive construction that will be going on, the park area is now closed to the public until the project is completed. Officials estimate the project’s completion to be in July 2018.
