MILHON PARK IMPROVEMENTS
New BLUE rubber mulch will be installed during early April to replace the wooden mulch which has deteriorated. Residents have volunteered to help with removal of the mulch, installation of the hardware cloth underlay. Others will help put the mulch into the area under and surrounding the playground equipment. We are hopeful that the project will be completed by April 13.
PLEASE contact a Board member if you would like to volunteer to help.
