Hope to see you there!

Tree work in Crispus Attucks Park

On Thursday, January 26 and Friday, January 29, there will be tree work in Crispus Attucks Park.  Arborists will be trimming tree branches, lopping dead branches, and removing some trees that are either dead or past their safe lifespan.  The arborists will use equipment ranging from pole pruners to chainsaws.

Be safe, and please avoid areas of the park where this work is ongoing!
