I’m resisting posting the entire Zina Linnik park story because there have been a few tweaks to what they’re going to do and because I want to get the permission to publish the architect’s renderings, but here’s a list of some of the renovations planned:

�–� Tetherball courts, since it was one of Linnik’s favorite games.

�–� Birch trees, because they remind Linnik’s family of their native Ukraine.

�–� Large egg sculptures to honor her Ukrainian heritage.

�–� The unused, in-ground swimming pool would be transformed into a garden.

�–� Linnik’s first name written in Cyrillic on an existing cement structure near the pool.

�–� Decorative steel mesh clouds near the entrance and throughout the park.

�–� Benches arranged a semicircle to encourage reading.

�–� A chicken and an egg on poles at the entrance of the park.
