A system failure has shut down all irrigation in Legacy Park, leaving the grass with no extra water and the park looking browner than normal.
The Parks department is working on a solution including temporary irrigation to water the grass while the main irrigation system is being repaired. Although the grass may appear to be dead, it is just dormant and will revive once irrigation resumes. Full grass establishment takes approximately two years for full growth and areas that are not established will be re-seeded.
We appreciate the patience of park visitors and understand the frustration of this set back. Construction is still occurring in various parts of the park and the public is asked to avoid those areas.
