As a former Gaylord, this is really sad to see, but here's hoping the revised athletic park with have a replacement or complimentary feature for the school, community and city. Scona's swim team was always top notch and a big part of that school.
I wonder if the frustration extends to medians. The amount of weed-filled medians with dead elms is so depressing to see this summer. One particularly upsetting example is 114 St between 72nd Ave and University Ave where the top layer is red rock. I have a hard time seeing how that’s a nice environment for trees. Filled with weeds.While councillors were initially set to discuss a potential cosmetic pesticides ban in Edmonton, the conversation morphed into concerns about how green spaces in the city are maintained.edmonton.ctvnews.ca
They looked good earlier in the summer but they’ve gotten worse over the last few weeks, not to mention the 10 elms in the median they had to cut down a few years ago cause they died.That section has always drove me nuts! The road was re-done in the 90’s….but they haven’t kept up with adding more Crushed red rock to the median….so every year it gets a little less red…..at least the Elms are thriving
