Yesterday morning (Saturday 6/16/2018) decorative stones where added to the front entrance to the park. Members of the board, Scott White, Dave Fiske and Charity Hayden along with a collection of volunteers worked together spreading the newly delivered stones in the island.
The idea for the addition of some form of decorative covering to the front entrance island was spearheaded by long time park resident Pam Widdop and experienced landscaper Dave Fiske. (UPDATE: just as a point of clarification as people have been asking. The cost for the decorative stones in the entrance triangle as well as the tools used in the work, was donated by a group of residents. In no way could those funds have been put towards fixing the roads. Those funds are only a minuscule drop in the bucket in comparison to fixing up the roads.)
The task of finding the right stones, and making arrangements to have it delivered was a collaborative effort between all the volunteers, with board VP, Scott White providing lists of suppliers and logistical support. Once the stones arrived Scott White, Charity Hayden and Dave Fiske spread the stones in the island and watered it down to remove any road dust.
Once the stones where spread volunteers Eric Driest and David Fiske worked together to clean up the exterior of the island to finish of the project. All in all the effect was quite nice, making the front of the park all that much nicer to see when entering the park.
Here’s some photos of the work as it was being done:
And the finished results!
