A Busy Park in 2021

  • We built snowmen for the Last Snowman contest
  • Light snow and hoarfrost in January and February
  • Families anxious to get out and play as pandemic rules eased in March
  • Lots of people enjoying socially distanced visits in the park in the spring
  • Smoke from distant forest fires in July
  • People of all ages playing and relaxing in the park all summer
  • School groups playing games in the fall
  • So much snow in the winter of 2021-22

Tree Planting 2020

Thanks to Councilor John Orlikow we were allowed to spend up to $2,000 of a grant allocated to the park to buy some trees for the park to fill in holes where trees were dying. We hauled the trees back from Jeffries Nurseries in Portage in Roger’s truck, and had a successful planting bee on Saturday October 2nd. Thanks to everyone who helped plant the trees!

We were amazed at how dry the soil was when we dug our holes, so it’s a sign that we need to give all our young trees lots of water before winter sets in.

Snowmen

This weekend, Sonja Lundstrom organized  snowman building on Sunday afternoon, creating a little group of figures to great people entering the park at the Harvard and Ruskin corner.

Tuesday morning there was a little girl, about 3 years old,  going from one snowman to the other, gently hugging each one.
