Repairs to the park's damaged waterline are nearly complete and water could begin flowing in the park as early as next week, park manager Lisa Angelos said.

Tom and Judy Nelson wanted to buy a sailboat that had already accomplished what they themselves soon hope to do: circumnavigate the world. They found one for sale in Maryland four years ago that was leaky and needed some work, but it fulfilled their requirements.
