Students from Millennium High School who are interns with city engineers have helped survey Lincoln Park prior to crews giving the park a facelift.

The surveying gear creates a digital map of the park, pathways and features. Thousands of measurement points are taken and recorded which architects will use to design the map and landscaping for park repairs and additions.

They have been working each day for about a week and expect to have a few more weeks of surveying to complete the mapping for the park.
