A walking trail at the 11.2-acre park at Grant and Hunter streets in Plant City, named for Dr. Hal Brewer and his wife, Lynn, is set to open within two months, according to a TBO.com report written by long-timer Plant City reporter and editor Dave Nicholson.
The walking trail at the Dr. Hal and Lynn Brewer Park is complete, but work continues on other amenities, according to the TBO.com report, posted Feb. 22, 2013. Hal Brewer, who retired after a long and popular career as a Plant City physician, died from cancer in November at age 85.
Plans call for lighting, benches and better stormwater retention and a gazebo, monument sign, bike rack and pond fountain.
For additional information, including funding sources, see the TBO.com report.
The Brewers, married for 61 years, were long-time supporters of Plant City Entertainment. According to a 2010 MyPaperNow.com report:
Hal Brewer, M.D., with his wife, Lynn, remembers the time before actors took to the stage as Plant City Entertainment some 30 years ago. It was with a community theater troupe known as The Little Theatre. In its wake came the group known as Plant City Community Theater. But, because its acronym, PCCT, was shared with Plant City Children's Theater, the decision was made to change the troupe's name to Plant City Entertainment. With three show dates in February, in its new home at 101 North Thomas Street, the actors and behind- the-scenes players for Plant City Entertainment shared with the community its celebration of 30 years on stage. The 2010 production featured a sentimental journey through the past with both musical selections that have stood the test of time and oral histories that gave testament to the power of art to cement community ties.
