City of Parksville crews and contractors will be working in Foster Park this week to remove a number of dead, drying or compromised trees. This work is part of the city’s ongoing tree maintenance program and upgrades to Foster Park.
The work is expected to continue through the spring and will include irrigation upgrades and tree plantings. The area will be re-seeded later this year.
The Friends of Foster Park Society are aware of the work to be completed and through a campaign have raised funds to plant 25 trees for the society’s 25th anniversary.
Questions from the public should be directed to the city’s operations department at 250-248-5412 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
