Current Projects in Glenwood Children's Park

DMNA's Parks & Gardens Committee received a grant from the Bock Foundation to be used for urban forestry management.  The grant was for $5000 and must be utilized prior to March 2017.

Near the end of March 2016, City staff cut and removed a number of dead locust trees.  With the removal of these trees, the canopy became more open on the eastern side of the park.  Work is planned to stablize the steep hillside using brush bundles to help establish shrubs that will grow and reduce erosion of the soil on the steep slope.  At least a dozen trees will be planted.  

Stormwater has been flowing through the park during intense rainfall events and cutting channels through the park.  The site is being evaluated for possible solutions.
