Twin Pines Picnic Area Spruced Up
At the request of the Parks & Rec commission, the Buckeye Picnic area now has improved grassy area for kids to play.
The project was an item on the wish list of the Belmont Parks & Recreation Commission that makes recommendations for park improvements. The commission suggested that the grassy area next to the playground be expanded, thus making the picnic area more useful.
The Parks & Recreation Department also took the opportunity to replace the thirsty Bermuda grass with a shade and drought tolerant fescue grass that is better suited to Belmont's environment.
Park staff says these improvements will allow parents to sit at a shaded picnic table and watch their kids play in the adjacent playground on the grass field.
