Just a few days after I contacted our township parks and recreation department, major improvements were made at the entrance to the dog park.
The Eagle Scout candidate who has made beautifying the park his project got started right away, on Saturday. By the time Bailey and I arrived in the afternoon, the weeds were gone, and the dumpster was FULL. Friends who were at the park when the work started were told that a cat made a mad dash out of the shoulder-high weeds, and a number of ground hog holes were found and filled.
The next step is polishing up the appearance of the landscaping, adding mulch, and working on refinishing all of the benches at the park. Super!
