Why is this project being considered by the Parks and Recreation Commission?
Sustainable practices are valid and valuable for the future of our parks in Worthington. This 103-acre parkland was developed in 1974. It now has approximately 70 acres of woods, approximately 30 acres that are mowed and 3 acres being returned to natural grasses and wildflowers. Approximately 50 trees each year are taken down for various reasons - from age and decline, disease, beaver damage or trimming. In just the past 10 years, we have lost well over 500 trees. This project gives positive direction for proper stewardship of this property.
