Nature Park's Reopening Gets City Council Nod

The City Council this week took the first steps to reopen the city's Nature Park, which was closed eight years ago because of budget cuts.

The 5.75-acre park on Ball Road is used as a catch basin for winter storm runoff and as a nature area the rest of the year.

Marvin DeCarlo, director of the Recreation and Park District, said the council's approval means city employees can move ahead with $5,000 in repairs and clean-up work. Signs with information about the park's flora and fauna also must be replaced and updated. The park is expected to reopen by mid-1998.
