What’s it gonna be?

The Main Sewage Treatment Playground/Pumphouse Park near Eastern and Coxwell avenues will be decommissioned in the next few years. The heritage buildings will be up for grabs, to be repurposed for community use.

It’s good to save these old buildings. Note the tower stack on the right.
Impressive looking, but I don’t understand the playground equipment. 🙂
A closer look does not help me at all. It has fins. Very 1950s.

A 3D satellite map view kind of explains that the gaily painted stack is functional … and hooked to pumping station innards. What it does? Can you tell me?

This will all be replaced by a new facility going in right now, south of Lakeshore Boulevard.
