There are quite a few unplanted trees piling up now.

At least from the webcam, Portland Avenue does seem to be significantly throated down through the park.

Sooo, we're planting trees. What else if funded? Is irrigation? How about paths?

My impression was that most of the standard park "stuff" (planting, paths, seating, irrigation) was paid for, but the structures and fountain were deferred.

I definitely sense mounding support for this park! I bet it really brings in some lawn term benefits.
