Saturday’s cleanup was great. We had friends of the park come from all over the Midway Woods and a couple from Winnona Park, to move some compost, cut invasives, and plan for next steps.
In the next couple of weeks, we hope to receive a few new native species trees. These trees will be located in the open areas along Midway, Deerwood, Dearborn Cir. and a couple interior along the sidewalk where trees have been cut. If you’re curious, there are small mulch piles where the new trees will be located.
We also scouted an area for a bridge across Shoal Creek further down Deerwood and Candler Pointe. The best spot seemed to be close to where the new Decatur trail ends. After a feasibility check and expert input from the County, Park Pride, and City, we’ll know better what’s possible.
Many thanks to the ten or so people who came out, Park Pride for their support, and to Dekalb Parks and Recreation for the compost and debris removal.
Last but not least, thanks to Revolution Doughnuts and Nectar for sponsoring our clean up day. Please swing by these local establishments and show your support.
