Deconstructing Jo'An's

Deconstructing Jo'An's

Jo'Ans restaurant is going away after more than 35 years as a restaurant in the center of Idyllwild. Plans are currently to restore it to a park as it had once been for decades as Eleanor Park. Two circles have been drawn onto the ground to mark what will become a flag pole and base with surrounding benches placed very near the spot where once stood Eleanor Park's iconic water fountain; viewable in the movie Kid Gallahad with Elvis Presley. 
The deconstruction of the restaurant leaves a new large open space surrounding Idyllwild's Christmas tree just in time for the Tree Lighting Ceremony this week and will probably reshape the town's events in the future.
