SAN ANSELMO, Calif. (AP) - A Northern California park being built on land donated by filmmaker George Lucas will feature statues of Indiana Jones and Yoda, two of his most popular characters.

The Marin Independent Journal reports ( http://bit.ly/Ws4CcS) that the San Anselmo Planning Commission voted unanimously Monday to approve the downtown park. It could be completed as soon as June 1.

Lucas donated land for the 8,700-square-foot park. A commercial building on the site will be demolished at Lucas' expense, and a historic fresco will be relocated.

A fund is being established by a community foundation to pay for the park's ongoing maintenance and care.

The park's Yoda fountain will be similar to the one located at the Letterman Digital Arts Center in San Francisco.
