CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -

The Cedar Rapids Parks and Recreation Department says a time capsule recovered at Greene Square will be opened next spring.
The capsule was buried in the park in 1976 and was uncovered on August 10 when the park was being renovated.
The capsule will be opened at the park's grand opening celebration next spring when the capsule reaches 40 years of age.
The capsule will be stored in the Parks and Recreation Department until next spring; once it's opened, the contents will be put on exhibit at the Cedar Rapids Public Library.
