Angel Park gets a make-over

Mayor Gardner supervises the renovation of Angel Park in downtown Minden.

HGTV is in town, and inspiration is in the air. Mayor Terry Gardner was spotted doing some landscaping with a crew from TG’s at Angel Park on Tuesday morning. Angel Park is located downtown on the corner of Main Street and N. Monroe Street, across from Minden Medical Center. The fountain is being refurbished, a new irrigation system has been installed, and many new plantings are being added. Chimes can be heard. The stately oak has been encircled with a new metal bench. This bench will soon feature popular, Louisiana-based images. “I want this to be a place where tourists stop to take photos,” said Mayor Gardner. The cost of renovating the park will be fully funded by the mayor’s personal funds and by TG’s. Gardner said that he has found having HGTV in town to be inspiring. He hopes to make Angel Park into something that everyone in Minden can enjoy.
