Improvements Underway at Kenilworth Park

Posted on Posted in Beautification, News

It is the smallest traffic island in Terrell Heights to be sure, but a testament to the fact that any green space can become special no matter the size.

On a recent work day in November, members of the Terrell Heights Neighborhood Association began work on a new improvement plan for the small traffic island. Initial efforts included removing grass, scraping the dirt leveland regrading, creating border areas and a small pathway, beginning to lay landscape cloth and metal edging, and placing a boulder in the center of the site. Association beautification committee chair, Amy Sharp, prepared the plans along with local landscape architect and neighbor, John Lafoon. Special thanks to new neighbor John Romain who lives on the small park space and who also contributed greatly to the initial effort and planning. Future work days will see the landscape complete with extensive planing. Neighbors are welcome to join in the effort.
