Now that the cooler fall temperatures have arrived, Florence Community Services parks staff is over-seeding areas of the Town’s parks to create lush, green grass during the winter months.
Work begins weeks before the closure during the over-seeding process. The turf is not watered and begins to dry, at which time it is mowed very short. Once the turf is dry and mowed short, seed is applied. The Town appreciates observance and compliance of all posted signs by staying off the closed areas. Sprinklers will turn on throughout the day during the over-seeding process.
Central Bark Park – The dog park will be closed to the public from Monday, October 2nd to Monday, November 6th. We will also be completing several exciting improvements to the park at that time as part of the PetSafe Bark for your Park grant.
Main Street Park – The turf area will be closed from Monday, October 2nd to Monday, October 30th. The picnic ramadas and playground are available for drop-in use, but users are asked to stay on the sidewalks.
Dorothy Nolan Senior Center – The turf area south of the facility will be closed from Monday, October 2nd to Monday, October 30th.
The Community Services Department thanks everyone for your patience, understanding and cooperation during this time.
