14 LINCOLN JUNE 6-12, 2019 | VALLEY BREEZE | CUMBERLAND LINCOLN EDITION celebrated its 25th anniversary in the park. "Legend says that it could be the entrance to an intricate system of tunnels, trails and hollowed- out trees where a playful tribe of 'Funovitz' dwell," he said. "… Or it might be whatever you want it to be." Prachniak said parks and play- grounds are "special places for our bodies, minds and spirit," and that discovering elements like the door add to the experience for children and families. Unfortunately, the tree that the door was fastened to was complete- ly hollow and was encroaching on the park's chain-link fence. As part of the reconstruction of the town- owned recreation space, Parks and Recreation Director Alan Moreau said a number of trees are being taken out to improve the overall layout and functionality of Fairlawn Park. "The point of the project is to condense things and make it more efficient," he said. When complete, "people will be able to sit on the pavilion and have a clear line of sight to the playground, basketball court and other areas of the park." As for the fairy door, Moreau said he always liked that element of the park and hopes to find a way to incorporate it into the redesign, "as an ode to 'Prack,'" he said of his predecessor. In the meantime, Moreau told The Breeze that the fairies and their mystical counterparts are on a tem- porary vacation while construction is happening on their beautiful new neighborhood. "There's a lot of noise and activ- ity happening right now, but we hope to make up for it. Once everything is settled they'll come back from vacation to a bigger and better park," he said. "They're very excited." "Where should I have their mail forwarded?" Prachniak asked. The magical creatures could not be reached for comment.
