BIDDEFORD — Key features of the park on Williams Court will be unveiled Saturday. 

A lantern cast in bronze, featuring the hands of residents and friends of the South Street Neighborhood, and a bench in memory of Donna Marie Parent will be unveiled during a ceremony at 1 p.m. 

The lantern, forged and constructed by Eliot-based Green Foundry, stands at the center of a circular concrete walk in the park. Three dilapidated apartment complexes were demolished by the city to create the park, a project that was funded by the HUD Neighborhood Stabilization Program.

“The lantern is a symbol to the neighborhood of their strength and community, and the neighborhood has worked hard to promote revitalization,” said Community Development Coordinator Linda Hardacker. “They are very proud of this park and lantern and the efforts they made as a neighborhood to make it happen.”

The bench was carved by sculptor Joe Auciello of Rockland and was donated by the Parent Family of Cecile Parent and Saco and Biddeford Savings Institution. 

Following the ceremony, the free South Street Block Party will kick off at 2 p.m.
