Recently, Silver City MainStreet received a call from a Grant county resident who was in town to pick up her take out and have lunch. She was looking for a place to enjoy her lunch and got the last open table at The Hub. Her call was asking about other locations she could eat outside downtown. We are lucky that we have several pleasant places to enjoy take out food downtown.
The Big Ditch Park has a number of benches between Market Street and the Main Street Plaza. The Plaza also has benches and just north of the Plaza is Lion’s Park. Lion’s Park has several picnic tables that were recently painted by the Community Youth Building Project. These tree lined areas along the San Vicente Creek are almost always cooler than along the street. It’s also relaxing to hear and see the water flowing below. Check them out and you may be surprised at how nice they are.
On Spring Street you will find the lovely Jaurequi Park. Along with beautiful green grass and a mural dedicated to Greg Jaurequi, there are covered picnic tables. The Silver City Museum has a nice courtyard with benches under tall trees. These are some of the places you can enjoy a take out meal, smoothie or coffee from one of our downtown restaurants or coffee houses. Silver City MainStreet encourages you to support our local downtown restaurants by ordering take out.
First and foremost, prioritize and take all health and safety precautions for yourself and others in our community by wearing a mask and social distancing. Our community health as a whole depends on working together, and our small businesses are the lifeblood of the Downtown Silver City economy. We want to make sure they continue to stay successful while maintaining appropriate public health safety measures.
The mission of Silver City MainStreet is "To encourage a vibrant, historic downtown Silver City which is recognized as the heart of our diverse community." Please visit our website, www.silvercitymainstreet.com to learn more
