When will the trees be planted and basketball goals installed at this neighborhood park?

John,

Thanks for your note regarding the Limestone Quarry neighborhood park.

We postponed the tree planting until this fall. We felt this was best due to the temperatures and drought condition that were present when the grass was planted.

The trees will be dug after the first good frost and planted several weeks after that. It should be late November or early December.

The Goals should be installed at any time. Please be sure to let me know if you should have any questions.

Thanks,

why is the Quarry park all rolling terrian? Why could there not have been some area set up for baseball/soccer practice fields? This park adjacent to elementary school should have areas for children to play. There is no open flat grass in this park.

Dear Wayne,

Thanks for your note regarding the Limestone Quarry neighborhood park. There is a large area between the parking lot and the center area that has an approximate slope of 1.25 %. The school does have several large flat areas for the children to play.

In addition, there are several areas on the south and I believe on the east side of the school that are flat and allow the children use of these areas for outside play. There are also other areas along the creek that are flat which helps to meet the need of the residents of the area.

If you have any additional questions, please feel free to let me know.

Thanks,

I was involved in the planning meetings for Limestone Quarry park. The "open spaces" were supposed to be flat areas. Why was that changed?

As for the large area you spoke of in your last post, do you mean the area near the basketball and the Isbell Elementary parking? That area is not large and could not be used for the types of activities that were discussed during the planning sessions with the public.

Hunters Creek Resident,

Thanks for your note. In regard to your question about flat areas of the park, I would tell you that there are several “flat” areas in the park.

The first being an area on the other side of the parking lot. It is not completely level but more than suitable for a number of activities. Another area within the park can be found below the playground.

I can also say that during the construction of the park there was significantly more rock than would have been reasonably anticipated.

Due to this a berm was constructed on the north side of the park.

If you have an interest, I would be more than willing to sit down and help explain this process to you in more detail.

Please feel free to contact me at any time.
