New Reid Park
Ongoing: Ash trees are being removed in the wooded section causing some hiking trails to be temporarily closed.
Old Reid Park
Ongoing: Brush and honeysuckle work began to clear and reconstruct the pond peninsulas and banks, which will enhance the overall natural landscape and use of the park. Original native tree species and grasses will be planted on the banks to create shade, cool the water and improve the aquatic habitat. The project will create habitat for native waterfowl and deter non-native ducks and geese from congregating along the lagoon banks, which causes overgrazing and erosion. The former Beaver Lake property is closed for improvements and eventually expand Old Reid Park by 90 acres. A reopening date has not been set.
Currently there are no alerts.
