(WBIR) The city of Knoxville started Monday some much-needed work on Krutch Park.

Crews will drain water from the stream and pond in the park to do some maintenance. They're going to fix the waterfall section, repair the damaged stone, and clean up some of the debris.

The downtown park will stay open during the renovations, but the sidewalk next to the pond will be closed.

The work will continue through the end of the month.
