Old Top of The World Park Turf Removal
4/17/2015  In response to the need to reduce potable water usage, the City has turned off the water to the Old Top of The World Park turf. The grass will eventually die for lack of water. Design for renovation of that park will begin soon, and will focus on a low or not water usage design. The park renovation is expected to occur during the summer of 2016
