ROSWELL, N.M. (AP) – The city of Roswell is set to get new $100,000 city park near the International UFO Museum and Research Center.
UFO Museum Executive Director Jim Hill told the Roswell Daily Record (https://goo.gl/uaU89H) this week that work began a few weeks ago on the improvement project.
The park will be adjacent to the museum building, which is one of the city’s major tourist attractions.
Officials say the unfenced park will use the flowering plant vinca as ground cover because it requires relatively little water and is hearty enough to survive winters.
The park also will have walkways for people to travel through the area.
The museum also has plans to redesign the interior of the museum.
Museum president Jack Swickard says UFO Museum is paying for the park and owns the property.
