A Union soldier, flanked by goddesses, stands vigil in a Civil War monument that rises high above Wyman Park Dell at Charles and 29th streets.
Area residents are looking out for the dell, too.
They gathered 20-strong at the foot of the statue Saturday, to brainstorm ideas for making the Union Memorial Plateau at the southeast corner of the dell more of a draw for the public.
The group Friends of Wyman Park Dell is hoping to raise money to make the plateau more of a park-like setting, as part of a master plan for the 16-acre dell.
The group also wants to expand a nearby playground that is now little more than a swing set and a slide.
