Whirligig Park, Now with Whirligigs

IMG_20150331_113222634For a while people were complaining that the Vollis Simpson Whirligig Park had only one whirligig. Well complain no more because there are now eleven. Thirty-one whirligigs are slated to grace the park at its completion.  But they have a long way to go, for there are no pathways, landscaping, fountains, amphitheater, etc. However, the main attractions (whirligigs) are well on their way to completion thanks to the ingenious workers at Conservation Headquarters who are doing an extraordinary job getting these long neglected, singular examples of folk art preserved and back in working order.
