Can't help but notice all the houses around the park now. But I'm glad to see that the area around the monument is still lovingly maintained.

It looks like it has undergone quite a few changes over the years. We have one that's undergone quite a bit too.

Interesting that it appears to have withstood the challenges of time and weather quite well.
