A park for all seasons…
The Parkdale Park wetland occupies about 0.35 acres in the south end of the park, near the stormwater ditches. It consists of shallow (vernal) wetlands that hold water in the spring and dry out in the summer. Marion County planted native grasses, flowers, and sedges in the wetland area. This vegetation will be mowed annually to discourage brush growth and weedy species. Seventy Oregon ash trees were also planted on the site to help cool the stormwater, stabilize the soil, and uptake excess nutrients. Once they are established, the trees will be pruned of their lower branches to ensure that the park has clear lines sight (to help discourage unwanted activities)Diagram of Wetland
Sports facilitiesThough the wetland occupies a small section of the park, the remainder of the park could serve as sports playing fields. The soil removed from the wetland area was used to raise and smooth the northern area of the site. This area was planted with turf grasses to encourage informal sports activities.
