Be advised of landscape enhancements at Bayside Community Recreation

Landscape work scheduled to begin week of December 1, 2013

Thursday, October 10, 2013

Bayside Recreation Center, located at 4500 First Court Road, will be undergoing extensive landscape enhancements to the front entrance areas of the building.


The goals of these landscape enhancements seek to improve exterior security and safety for patrons, to reduce required landscaping maintenance and related costs, and to enrich the seasonal color and aesthetics of site plantings.


This work is scheduled to begin the week of December 1, 2013, with completion anticipated at the center by the end of the month, weather permitting. Turf at the center will be evaluated and replaced as needed during late winter/early spring 2014. Access to the building should not be disrupted, but patrons are advised to take caution upon entering and leaving the building.
