They’re working on the stone pillars that bracket the various entrances to Schiller Park. Every morning as I walk by the pillars are a bit more disassembled, and it’s interesting to see the methodical pace of the stonework as it progresses.
I like the pillars, so I’m hoping the work involves repair and replacement of the mortar gluing the stones together, rather than outright removal. The pillars speak of age . . . and character. And it’s good to see that the Columbus Parks and Recreation Department is paying attention to details like the condition of stone pillars. Schiller Park is a jewel, and every jewel needs polishing now and then.
