1993 City Park Flooding

The four city blocks of the Sutton City Park have been subject to several major renovations and modifications, usually with good reason.

The original course of School Creek through the park was not a direct route but more of a meander as the creek looped around within the park.The downside of that configuration was that in times of heavy rainfall and runoff the creek just couldn't handle the flow. And as a result:

This enlargement better shows the height (depth) of the water when compared with the eaves of the pavilion. Also note the extent of the trees at that time. 
Thanks to Dorothy Rabbe for the photo.
