|The old power plant at Cascades Park drawn up as a microbrew pub.|
For the last 5 years - the city has been working on a new park downtown - called Cascades Park. At one time their was a small river with a cascading falls there - thus the name. This park is about 1/2 mile from our front door.
The area was a derelict superfund site - polluted by an old coal fired power plant that was there. One of the main buildings was left behind during the park work. Supposedly the park will be done this summer.
These pictures and rumors are flying around Facebook. I generally do not pass on gossip - unless it is positive. Tallahassee has been documented to have 1000 different places to eat. One wonders if it could support another. But it would be a nice destination where we could walk to eat - or at least take the golf cart.
Personally I do not care what they put there - as long as it is built with private money - not supported by my tax dollars. I would be happy to patronize it. They say there are two times when a restaurant is busy in Tallahassee - in the first month when it is opened - and in the last month after it announces it is closing.
Note - this is only a rumor.
