The scale model river replica in Mud Island River Park is receiving some much needed TLC. The work comes 30 years after the park's grand opening.
According to the Memphis Daily News, work will include simple things like re-caulking joints and more complicated repairs to recylcing pumps that carry water from the mini Gulf of Mexico back to the north end of the park or "headwaters" of the model.
The river replica is considered by many to be one of the city's architectural gems. It has sustained some damage from settling over the years and the flood of 2010.
