DETROIT – The former Animal Control Building was demolished Monday to expand Riverside Park.
Crews began demolishing the center at 10 a.m.
The 3-acre site is expected to become part of Riverside Park, which is undergoing an expansion and renovation.
A portion of the site is supposed to become a new dog park.
Last fall, work was completed on a softball diamond, and this year work is planned for a new soccer field, playground, basketball court, skate park, picnic shelter, amphitheater and sledding hill.
