To prepare for renovation work at several parks this spring and summer, select trees and shrubs will be removed during the next few weeks, weather permitting. The locations are Breta Park, the Idylwild Blvd. medians, Lakeview Park, Antelope Park near the Normal and South Street intersection and Pioneers Park near the entrance to Pinewood Bowl. The trees must be removed now to comply with the Federal Migratory Bird Act.
Some of the remaining stumps will be ground down, while others may remain in place for removal during upcoming construction activities. The renovation projects at each location include the installation of new landscaping and the planting of new trees.
