This week's new issue of the Kitchissippi Times features the first of a two-part article on the surprising history of Laroche Park. Recently Laroche Park was named the site of a Sens RINK, but it was delayed (and possibly cancelled) due to soil contamination. News reports and basic searching found little info on why it is contaminated, so I made it my mission to dig deep in the past and get the details. Why I unearthed shocked me! What a history this parcel of land has. You won't want to miss this article (and really cool photo) at the Kitchissippi Times: https://kitchissippitimes.wordpress.com/2015/11/13/laroche-park-westfest/
Part two will be in the next issue, due out November 26th. Cheers!
