Just as the phoenix rises from the ashes, Jeff Clegg and his Toledo Memorial Park staff are determined to craft innovative new uses for the historic stone wall and entry gates that lined Monroe Street. The wall has been removed to make way for road construction. A plan to reuse the 23 mature trees that were removed along with the removed utility poles is also under discussion.
