Lawn Update: The Wait is Over!

The lawn finally opened today after almost three months of preparation. The weather conditions could not have been better for our Opening Day. No wolf sightings this year, but people were able to spread out, relax, and even juggle on the fresh green grass.

We owe a big thank you to all park visitors who have tolerated the construction, accommodated pathway closures, and patiently awaited the lawn opening. Moving forward, the new irrigation system should improve the lawn's drainage and allow for more lawn open days throughout the summer. Hopefully, it was worth the wait.

Check out these posts for past updates on the entire lawn installation process:


  1. I kind of wanted to run across the grass yelling THE LAWN IS OPEN! THE LAWN IS OPEN! a la the new phonebook's here.... but I was at work. *sigh*

  2. Lauren: I think the lawn opening *week* calls for that kind of exuberance. You could give it a try today...
