In June 2021, the City of Coldwater began renovating Four Corners Park to provide an updated gathering area for its citizens. Four Corners Park's first renovation in the last fifty years includes a reimaged monument gallery, improved lighting, walkways, seating, new landscaping, and a cohesive design connecting all four corners. The gallery will feature nineteen monuments, such as the Cannon, Loomis Battery Plaques, and the Korean and Vietnam War Memorials. Renovations are taking place in two phases, with phase one expected to be complete by mid-October.
Keith Baker, City Manager, and Todd Mistor, Director of Municipal Services, met with Contractors on Monday, August 30th, for an update on the Project. Representatives from Parrish Excavating and Jepson Electric were in attendance, along with the City's landscape architect, Pam Blough of PM Blough, Inc.
Phase One of the Four Corners Park project is on schedule, with the target completion date of mid-October. The cement and brickwork are currently under construction, and monuments are beginning to return to the park. The next activities on the schedule include concrete sidewalks, monument bases and memorial wall, lighting, and final landscaping. Phase Two is expected to start in the spring of 2022 with the entire Four Corners Park project wrapping up by the fall of 2022.
