A longtime symbol of Cedar Rapids has been unveiled after the 2008 floods damaged it.
The new Five Seasons Plaza was shown off Thursday in a ribbon cutting.
The Tree of Five Seasons sculpture and surrounding park were heavily damaged by the flood of 2008, but they have been repaired and improved thanks to two community volunteers, Bill Munsell and Gary Anderson.
Munsell and Anderson raised about 400,000 dollars in private donations for the project.
"Symbols are only meaningful if as people we use our time, talent and professions to help each other," said Daniel Gibbons, Cedar Rapids Parks and Recreation Department.
With the money raised, they added 11 new trees and other landscaping.
