Construction for Fred Anderson Dog Park Begins on Wabash

A reader writes and sends us a pic:
Seems to be some work going on in the lot on wabash. They seem to be digging up the grass and trees (and old tires!). Any insights?
Well actually yes!  It would appear that the city has finally commenced construction on the Fred Anderson dog park on the east side of Wabash (just south of 16th).  As you may recall, this park has gone through many iterations and has been dragging on for six years.

We were also questioning the need for a new dog park.  Seemed like a strange to have a park honoring a local jazz titan and coupling that with a state-of-the-art dog park.  Maybe Fred Anderson was a Jazz fan and a dog fan?!?!?!

Regardless, something is better than nothing in our opinion - especially for this drab area of Wabash.

So there you have it...apparently it's go time for this park!

The last rendering of the park we saw was this (via DNAinfo):
