The Carroll Creek flood control project created a linear park along the bed of the creek and the underground carriers of the flood waters. The project starts at the edge of Baker Park (above) on the west side of the business district and ends near the fair grounds on the east side. A linear park was created along the section from Baker Park to East Street. Work has now begun on the section from East Street to Patrick Street. In addition to creating a park like setting, redevelopment of some of the buildings is planned, with addition businesses and restaurants.
