Parks Report

The Pecan Grove Property Owners Association (POA) has asked to plant a tree in Memorial Park in memory of Jim Ashmore, who was the long term president of the POA. The tree planting will occur probably late next fall when tree survival is better.

The POA held their annual Easter Egg hunt on March 30, 2024, at Pecan Grove Park on Pitts Road.  This event has some problems due to overcrowding, parking violations and the presence of food vendors at the park. These concerns will need to be addressed before next year’s event.

One of the fountains at Pecan Grove Park has been repaired and the second fountain is waiting on delivery of parts to get it back in service.

The pavilion in the park was reserved 7 times in April and the reservations for May have been busy as well.
