Appears to be 1963 or early 1964.

It looks like white cars were definitely a thing back then.

Republic Center II opened in 1964 so you're probably correct. I think there are a lot of pastel cars with white roofs; the lighting and quality make it hard to see the details.

One thing I noticed while riding by this morning is they have built a cinderblock structure on the Hardwood side where the food truck/eating area is located. I suspect its a restroom structure but I don't see it in the site plans previously released.

One observation about Pacific Park while passing by yesterday is how much they have built the park up and incorporated little hills into it. I wasn't expecting that but was a nice surprise, I can imagine this being even better once the landscaping goes in.

Looks like they're starting to plant new trees on the corner of Harwood and Elm.

Harwood / Pacific. I wonder if they kept the "Aston Park" dedication marker and will reincorporate it somewhere within the park.

Thanks, yes Harwood & Pacific of course. I imagine they won't keep the marker if they're renaming that section of the park "Aston Grove" per their website. Maybe a new marker somewhere will tell the overall story of the park, including the connection to James Aston.
