2 proposals for Gillham Park horse barn




In anticipation of our April 21 General Meeting, the HPNA Board met with Parks on April 13 to find out the status of the two RFP responses submitted for the horse barn in Gillham Park. The Board learned that Parks has made a decision regarding the proposals. Parks doesn't post the proposals, so we have obtained both and they are posted below. A representative from Parks will be in attendance at the General Meeting to explain the RFP process and answer questions about their decision. Please join us to discuss the future of this historical structure April 21 at 7 PM at Central Presbyterian (3501 Campbell).

Janssen Place Pillars

The Neo-Classic Revival-style entrance to Janssen Place is at the north end of the divided street. Erected in 1897, the gateway is constructed with white Arkansas limestone. Large pillars frame an entablature supported by three Ionic columns containing the words “Janssen Place.”

The popular fly-casting pool at Forty-first Street and Gillham Road gave residents a place to practice casting without having to leave town. On certain days, the facility was reserved for children wading. The 1913 casting and wading pool designed by George E. Kessler was rebuilt and enlarged in 1940 and removed in 1976.
