Christmas display up at Angels Park

Posted: Updated:

If you've been driving past Angels Park in Evansdale recently you've probably seen something new reflected in the lake -- Christmas lights.

The park, on the island in Meyers Lake, honors those we've lost. Among them are Lindsey Nichols, who was shot and killed in 2012, as well as Lyric Cook & Elizabeth Collins, the Evansdale girls that were kidnapped and murdered.

Park officials have added extra decorations to the gazebos and trees. Tom Nichols, Lindsey's father, said when he sees the lights, he remembers his daughter. He hopes the decorations will keep her memory alive for others.

"I wish she was with me, but she's not so this is more of something to keep her name out there and keep her alive in everybody's memories as well as mine," he said.

The park was launched in 2013, and is nearing completion.
