Bark Chips Arrive and Keep Parks Firework Free
The bark chips arrived at Wallace this week. There were no signs asking users to show compassion for neighbors if their dogs bark excessively. One of the park’s playgrounds was fenced off. I talked to park staff onsite and they explained that they hope repairs to the playground structure will occur within a week. The structure has sagged because of heavy run off compromising its “foundation”.
One of the large stately Elm trees on the western boarder of Couch Park and the MLC black top appears ill. The tree lost two massive limbs last Wednesday.

I reached out to PP&R, ONI and PPS this week about July 4th fireworks concerns. If you live near Wallace Park please call 911 if you see any fire work usage near the new field. The swift watch slope above the field, tennis courts, and basketball courts are all typically sites for street bought fireworks. The new turf of the soccer field is artificial and it will be costly to repair if fireworks land on it. ”Just a Field” group raised the money to install this amenity in record time, let’s help make sure the field is a lasting sustainable asset in our community.
