I was driving on Valley Street today- and instead of looking at Children’s Medical Center construction- I looked North at the corner of Chapel and Valley- and what was- was no more.
Flood Memorial Park is no longer there. Dedicated in 1992- nothing is left- no brick twists, no house with an attic window- and no more gates. I seem to remember that this was a pretty expensive little project- with donors being hit up to buy bricks. If this is the best we can do for public art- maybe we need to reevaluate building a huge memorial to the Wrights at the corner of 70 and 75- or any other public art projects.
Take a look at the info on the following link:

I love public art- but, prefer the interactive sort. That was one of the short comings of the flood park in my opinion.
