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.
July 10 – August 10 – Crews are currently working on road and infrastructure improvements in Snyder Park near the clubhouse and Speedway Childrens Park. Please be note there will be possible road and green space closures during this period as improvements are being made.
**Detours for Bike Trail Maintenance will be posted when work begins on the following:
Buck Creek Trail June 11 – 29
Little Miami Trail July 2 – 13
Simon Kenton Trail July 16 – August 3
Buck Creek Trail behind Topre America (no detour for this particular project)
