Fresno High has formally unveiled its new plaza, a spacious grass lawn at the front of the school that flanks the central Fresno school's two newly-built buildings.
The dedication of Warrior Park signals the end of months of construction at the school. Over the summer, the school's two old "bunker" buildings were razed to make way for a new administration office and library. The new buildings are designed in a classical style mirroring the historic Royce Hall.
Completing the green space rounds out the project, which was paid for through voter-approved Measure Q funds.
Most of the people on campus -- students, staff and administrators -- plus Fresno Unified School District Board Member Carol Mills, who represents the Fresno High area, attended a noontime ribbon-cutting Wednesday to celebrate the new plaza.
