Knox Mayor Unveils Performance Stage Rendering, Seeks Input

Wythogan Park Performance Stage renderingKnox Mayor Dennis Estok is ready to focus on the next planned Wythogan Park improvement. He shared a rendering of the proposed band stage with the city council Tuesday evening. The 18×30 foot structure will sit in the grassy area between the park entrance and the splash pad. Estok wants to use local fieldstones for the retaining walls and columns to mirror the columns at the park’s entrance.

Plans call for the old railroad bed to be used as a loading and unloading area for performers so they will have easy access to the stage.

Estok would like input from the public before asking the engineer to draw up more formal plans. He told the council he hopes to get the project done this year but said he’s not going to set a timeline for doing so.
