Indoor Drinking Fountains and Restrooms

The restrooms in the recreation center and four of five drinking fountains assessed were clean and functioning.  One drinking fountain did not have sufficient water pressure.

Field Restrooms

The field restrooms were unclean, poorly lit, and had no soap, hand dryers, or towels.

Maintenance

Despite the numerous well-maintained features, there were some facilities rated lower.  The multipurpose field had bare patches and uneven terrain.  The paved multipurpose court had torn basketball nets.  Although much of the walking loop was well-maintained, there were ruts, rocks, and puddles of standing water.  Several holes were observed in the adjacent fences.

Park Cleanliness

Small pieces of litter were observed.  Trash was overflowing from dumpsters; the team also observed two bulk items, broken glass, and graffiti.

Water Conservation

There was standing water on the driveway, walking loop, and lawn during a time period where there had not been any rain for weeks.  There were at least seven stressed or dead trees.  The lawn had areas of dry patches.
