Nancy Owens is working on the renovation of Astoria Park, which includes essential infrastructure maintenance, such as erosion control and fixing the drainage system.

“However, what is known is that future work will also involve upgrading park infrastructure. This includes fixing the drainage system and protecting the park from erosion.

Owens explained that Astoria Park has “great bones” but is very run down, and will require much more than cosmetic improvement.

Owens noted that an arborist, who assessed the condition of the park, discovered that about 44 trees were dead or dying and would need to be removed.

In addition to the infrastructure improvements, future phases are likely to involve upgrading the playground and nearby comfort station, as well as adding lighting, plantings, and general upgrades throughout the park. There are also plans to add canopy trees for shade, as well as smaller plants and shrubs.”
