Construction & Repair

Many repair projects in city parks (simple building repairs, stone work, crosstie walls, stonewalls, tree removal, and repairing, and/or installing new sidewalks) are done by public works. They also enhance the parks with special building projects (e.g., the train the children play on at Huntley Hills Park or the fire truck and bridge at Keswick Park).
