Flash Back Friday - Reischman Park

Established in 1982, Reischman Park in Roswell New Mexico was gifted to the city by the Reischman family. Over the years the 51m2 park has suffered wear and tear. In 2013 renovations were coordinated with the non-profit Roswell Interarts Organisation (RIO), which raised separate funds to create the custom artwork for the park. 

RIO had the task of creating an updated art space using inspiration from historic Roswell photos, which consisted of a new arched entryway, tiled seating, and a mural. Susan Wink, representing RIO, was the artist/designer of the park project. Susan worked with Harva Joseph, owner of George's Carpet & Tile, as well as installers Gary Gingrich and Kendra Barnett, 

"We recognise LATICRETE as a strong company with a fine reputation for great products and exceptional service” Harva commented. 

The Reischman Park project has taken over six years to complete and all parties involved are extremely happy with the outcome of the new Reischman Park. Read the full Project Spotlight here.
