“Although the center sustained major damage, at least no one was injured in the flood,” said center Director Powell Jones.
The center, located in Railroad Bridge Park, 2151 W. Hendrickson Road, will be closed until repairs and restoration, including replacing drywall, insulation and wiring and repairing sprinklers, are complete.
Another loss is damage to the nature mural done by artist Tim Quinn. Jones said about 8 square feet of the mural on the south wall had to be removed to eliminate all the water intrusion and chances for mold.
He said he hopes the damaged area can be restored. Quinn created the mural several years before his death in December 2009.
Jones said the extent of the damage is still being evaluated, and estimates of the cost of restoration are not yet available.
When it reopens, the center will resume winter hours and will welcome visitors from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesdays through Fridays and from noon to 4 p.m. Saturdays.
