We have planned three days this winter to clean up some of our parks. Now that debris has been cleaned up and trees have been cut down it is time to work on some other projects. We will be either landscaping and planting trees, cleaning smaller debris, or other projects. This is a great start to make the parks better than they were before! More information on each park and project will be determined and announced later.
