BOSTON (CBS) – There have been workers inside the drained lagoon at the Boston Public Garden lately.

They’re in the first phase of a city-funded restoration project.

“We’re very encouraged to see that the city has allocated money to doing this type of capital improvement,” Liz Vizza with “Friends of the Public Garden” told WBZ NewsRadio 1030. “It’s a very important thing that has been needed for some time.”

The lagoon’s been leaking more over the past several years, creating puddling on the garden.

This project is designed to address the leakage.

Vizza says it’s important for the city to maintain this area.

“It’s one of our destination spots for residents, workers, tourists and the lagoon is the centerpiece,” Vizza said.

The lagoon phase of the project will be completed in early April.
