At our last meeting the Friends determined that our next big physical improvement to Julian Abele Park will be to purchase and have installed a professional sprinkler system to water the central lawn area. Compared to the lush green lawn that was originally planted in 2013, the current state of lawn might be described as “suffering” and we feel that a dedicated sprinkler system with a timing mechanism may help.
At this point we estimate the cost to be over $6000.00. Ideally, if we raise the funds quickly, we can have it installed by June 2017- in time to help make sitting on the lawn for our Summer “Music and Mist” series more enjoyable.
