Wear and Tear

The outdoor fitness stations showed signs of wear and tear. A paved multipurpose court had no nets and cracks in the asphalt. Some of the picnic tables were worn and a few were not usable.

Water Conservation & Drought Effects

Dry spots and weeds in lawn areas were throughout park. Stressed or dead trees were observed, The multipurpose field was approximately 30% bare. Several muddy patches were noted throughout the park.

While clean, two of the five drinking fountains assessed lacked sufficient water pressure.
