The Parks Division of the Grants Pass Community Development Department has been busy preparing for the upcoming outdoor recreation seasons.

According to Grants Pass City Manager Aaron Cubic, contractors have begun the process of dismantling the outdated play structure at Reinhart Volunteer Park. He said the project is advancing steadily and the anticipated completion is in April.

Cubic said park staff removed a dead tree at the Grants Pass Police Department and replanted two new American Hornbeams in front of the main entrance last week. They will provide a nice splash of red color in the fall.

A big thank you goes out to the Rogue Pickleball Club who generously contributed two new sets of bench components to the parks. Staff painted the lumber and put together the new bench additions.

Another shout out goes to the Rogue Valley Rose Society who made their annual pruning trek to Riverside Park. Park officials said this volunteer group does a fantastic job every year diligently pruning the park's roses to maintain a quality appearance as well as the health of the roses.
