Residents petition city to help out Byrd Park lakes

As of this morning the petition has 138 signatures.

A petition has popped up on that is asking Councilman Parker Agelasto and the city to focus more attention on Byrd Park, specifically around the lakes. The park sees a significant amount of usage yet maintenance is lagging behind.

Major improvements are needed such as dredging of the three lakes (which hasn’t occurred in decades, to help control the algae blooms every spring/ dying fish), fixing the collapsing water spring, repairing cracking sidewalks, picking up general debris, etc. Also, more staff and more reliable landscaping equipment are needed to help maintain the 200+acres of Byrd Park.
