Insight Denton: They demolished the old jail between City Hall and the Civic Center. Will that area become part of Quakertown Park?

Yes. Assistant City Manager Jon Fortune, who now oversees they city's new Capital Projects Department, says crews have two remaining jobs in reclaiming that area. First, new curb and gutter work will shore up parking spots that used to surround the old building. Once that's finished, another crew will plant grass. The city plans to have the work finished before festivals begin. Fortune said to look for the work to be finished in time for the Denton Arts & Jazz Festival, which runs April 28-30.
