Here is the information we just got from the city:
If you did not know - the "real grass" died so all that was there were weeds.
They plan to aerate the ground and insert nutrients where they killed the grass (weeds). On Wednesday (April 27) they will plant (not spray) seeds using a machine that cuts small grooves into the ground. They will install orange plastic fence around the newly seeded area and immediately open the remainder of both Parks -- the play structures, picnic area and restrooms. They may end up putting in sod on the remainder of the small grass areas around the play structures that they did not kill. For now, that’s TBD.
They expect to have both Parks fully open by the 4th of July weekend. The grand opening for Nichols will be on the 23rd of July. I don’t have a date for the grand opening of Festersen but it will probably be in early August.
