EUGENE, Ore. - If you went by Eugene's Alton Baker Park Wednesday or today (Sept. 13), maybe you noticed some backhoes and dump trucks.
Don't worry, they're there to help build a new park within a park.
Backers say the Nobel Peace Park is going to be the nation's first park to recognize the American winners of the Nobel Peace Prize.
The two acre park is going up right beside the DeFazio bike bridge.
Organizers say the Nobel park has been funded entirely through donations.
Nobel Park Eugene committee member, John Attig, explains the basic plan. "The main thing is a wandering path. The path to peace is never straight; that's part of the design.
Along it will be a couple of walls," says Attig.
Walls that will have pictures of the 24 American winners of the Nobel Peace Prize.
Attig says $250,000 in cash and material donations make the park possible.
It should be done in the next 3 months.
