Repairs at Minnesota Grove
Interim repairs have been completed at Minnesota Grove as we work out timing for larger scale improvements to the north and south ends of the park. Winter rains cause quite a bit of flooding in the north end and the path had become worn and rutted. GBD crews improved drainage, stabilized the path borders and resurfaced the path. A trash bin and dog waste bag station were also installed. The Grove is bursting with sprouts and flowers. It’s a good time to pay a visit.
Upgrades to IM Scott Sidewalk Gardens
GBD crews installed brick edging along the planters on the Tennessee side of IM Scott School and bricked a through-garden path at the white zone that is used heavily by the local kindergarten kids. Park Steward Janet Carpinelli urges us to take note of the native plants nurtured in that garden.
