Construction gets underway this week in Downtown Harlingen the Centennial Park Mural & Plaza. The project will be completed by April 2010, in time for Harlingen’s Centennial Celebrations.
The Centennial Park Mural & Plaza Project will include installation of the 905-piece “History of Mexico and Mankind” tile mural that Harlingen acquired from the California Museum of Science & Industry in 2000. Megamorphosis is the Architect and D. Wilson Construction Company the General Contractor. The Harlingen Community Improvement Board has approved $175,000 for this project. Centennial Park is located at 101 S. West Street (along the railroad tracks between Jackson, Van Buren, and West).
