The bandstand in the Burlington Northern Park is back in business.

Public Works Director Ron Bucholz said that the nearly 100-year-old bandstand has been restored to structural safety and retouched to emphasize its historicity.


"We put the wood trim around the steel railings to give it more of the old look," he said.

The rest of the project is not yet complete, and Bucholz said that the city plans to finish landscaping and improve the parking lot in the spring.
