The other day I showed that they were now building the concrete seating in a circle around the “Kiosk” or Band Shell. Well today as I walked by before my haircut I noticed something interesting. Instead of using re-barb inside the huge concrete two-level seating they are using locally harvested rocks – yep – big rocks around which they hand-pour concrete from buckets. Hmmm. Well, it does help fill in the space with something more than just concrete! And I’m not an engineer, so maybe it is as good as re-barb though I have my doubts, especially since we regularly have earthquake tremors around here. Oh well, not my problem! 🙂 Pura vida!
Step 1: Fill each level of form with rocks.
Step 2: Hand pour concrete around rocks.
Step 3: Finish with smooth concrete.
Step 4: Finished product looks great!

My growing gallery of progress on the Atenas Central Park Remodeling.
The city has a Facebook Page presenting the remodeling with architect drawings of how they expect it to look.
