The rock wall located in the park has been getting fixed by Northern Bedrock Historic Preservation Americorps members. The restoration includes graffiti removal, removal of damaged rock, and surface capping.

"The wall is about 100 years old. At the moment right now we are breaking out the old motar and getting ready to fill the joints up with new mortar,” Addison Galagan, An Americorps member, said.

The project is a partnership with the City of Duluth. The project is expected to be done by June 5.

Northern Bedrock is a nonprofit that works to engage the next generation in preservation work by partnering with professionals who have experience with historic preservation.

Northern Bedrock Historic Preservation Corps AmeriCorps crews have been serving with Western Lake Superior Habitat for Humanity. AmeriCorps members have been learning tool usage, measuring, and building techniques, while building sheds and working on home builds with Habitat from May 31 to June 5.
