Park Cleanliness

Graffiti was observed on a picnic bench and on a few signs. Litter was observed by the basketball court and throughout the park. While fences were in generally good condition, the large amount of fencing made the park seem less inviting.

Drought Effects

A few stressed trees were observed. The multipurpose fields had bare spots with more than 40% exposed dirt.

Wear and Tear

Some of the pain on the play structures was peeling or worn.
