Exciting news! Our very own Veterans Park, which has been a simple wooded green space to date, is getting a makeover. Construction began this week, and will involve adding small monuments to each branch of the armed service, walking paths, accessible parking, decorative landscaping and a small grass area for gathering. The project will require 11 trees to be removed, but the Tree Board is already on the scene and is working on the replacement strategy to ensure the maintenance of the city's Net Zero Tree Policy. The project is a tribute to the sacrifices others have made for our freedom, and is due to be completed in early fall.
