Would you like fries with your backhoe? The Murray Park Café was demolished in February.

Some may have gotten heartburn from it if it stayed, others may feel heartache now that it is gone. The Murray Park Café, a fixture of the park since the 1960s, was torn down in February. The building, which would operate in the summers, was the location of many a Murray teenagers’ first job.

According to Murray Parks and Recreation Director Kim Sorenson, “The building needed many improvements, and with food trucks now coming to the park, it wasn’t feasible to operate.”  Murray Park is again planning a weekly food truck festival in the summer.
