Mrs. Anne Wigle-Occhipinti's 5th grade design class is working on a wetlands restoration in the park! Parks has already helped by changing mowing patterns, to let the soggy area stay in a more natural state. Two benches have been placed nearby, a footbridge is coming soon, and different plantings are being discussed. Such a great way for kids to learn about their environment and to care for our wonderful park.
