Clearing Invasive Species
There have been some conversations in the community about the clearing of the area behind the Kiwanis Pavilion north of Center Lake. Since the Park was developed it has become increasingly difficult to manage the spot growth of invasive species such as autumn olive. With input from ODNR, the City Tree Commission and others it was decided to address the worst areas and mechanically clear the infestation. We have completed phase one of the process. We now are moving on to phase two which is to destroy the root systems of this invasive growth. Phase three will be to plant over 50 native Ohio trees to provide future bird habitat and aesthetically pleasing shaded areas. Please bear with us as we move forward in our efforts to continuously monitor, manage and improve our beautiful park.
