Landfill ground-swell

If you take a walk in Wendy Park on a nice spring day
And look around towards the salt mines and the city skyline and at Lake Erie...



You may just find bits and pieces of Cleveland's past, given up by the ground as the earth warms in the spring...




Wendy Park in Cleveland is about 2 miles from my house  on a plot of land at the mouth of the Cuyahoga River called  Whiskey Island. The land is raised up a bit because the city of Cleveland filled the land with refuse in order to create a straighter, man-made mouth of the river in 1827. Originally, the land was inhabited by American Indians, then by a farmer who also had a whiskey distillery, and later  inhabited by Irish-Americans who helped to dig the Ohio andErie Canal

If you ever visit Cleveland...perhaps for a workshop? You'll want to find this lost gem.
