Over a hundred people gathered Saturday outside the Main Library at Goodwood to celebrate the grand opening of Independence Park’s activity Plaza and Cyber Cafe. BREC and the library system teamed to integrate a previously divided park and library, removing barriers and adding landscaping, a plaza and a cafe into the park near the library main entrance. The Plaza features a stage with grass seating designed to showcase LED screens, a large chess board, and a splash pad at the center. BREC’s Cyber Cafe features programming and meeting space and will house a Roly Poly and CC’s Coffee House opening February. The reception was open to the public with fall children’s activities and crafting exercises, live jazz band, rose sale and flower show, and refreshments.
