Leghorns Park Trees

Broken streetlight? Busted play equipment? What needs a little TLC around town?

Leghorns Park Trees

Postby PennyMoney » Sun Mar 18, 2012 1:41 pm

Wondering why the trees between the two baseball fields were never staked properly.....some of them are growing at a 45 degree angle. It would have been so easy to stake them upright in the first place. Yes, it's a bit of a wind tunnel there, but someone should have fixed this before the trees got big. :?

Here's a better question ... who cares about the trees ... why is the baseball field in such horrible shape?

We jokingly call this the Walk of Shame. Only one tree stands upright -- the others will eventually have to be removed due to the neglect. It would have been so easy to stake them properly before they grew so windblown and tipped over.

:?: And WHO planted the WORST landscaping for ballfields and tennis courts????? Big huge overgrown fronds which swallow up foul baseballs and stray tennis balls, not to mention trapping litter. Please! Take them out and replace them with something more park-friendly. Or at least take care of them and give them a much-needed trim.

At Leghorns Park today we saw broken glass (near the ball fields), graffiti on the bricks outside the restrooms, and the barbecue tables need to be sanded and/or power washed. Especially the phallic symbols.

And yes, the overgrown "bushes" by the fields and tennis courts are WAY out of control.

How about some of the local high school clubs volunteering some time? Would the city or park/rec dept. organize that or approve it?

Maybe PFOR can start organizing volunteer groups for park maintenance and clean-up. Pulling out those wicked bushes at Leghorns would be a good start. Friedman's would hopefully donate supplies (bark chips, etc.)

Took a walk through Leghorns Park today and.....surprise!

THANK YOU to whoever is responsible for taking out all those huge frondy plants and replacing them with bark chips and some low shrubs. Great improvement! Hopefully the upkeep will be easier.

I'm sure the foul baseballs and wayward tennis balls will be happy!

Thanks!
