The Clark Park Tree Removal

For improvement on drainage, re-routing of walkways and re-wiring the Clark Park “A”‘s lighting system, a volunteer community association (Friends of Clark Park) joined forces with the University City District, State Senator Anthony Hardy Williams, State Representative James Roebuck, and donors to PARC to gain enough funds to do so.

In order to organize which trees were to be removed, the Friends of park marked the trees with a white “X”. This grabbed the attention of neighboring residents.

Clark Park is scheduled to re-open by the end of November 2010 and close again until the repairs are finished in the spring of 2011.
