  1. What's going on in Doling Park?

    Heavy equipment and supplies are being placed west of Doling Lake for the ongoing Doling Park and Pea Ridge sanitary sewer project. In coming weeks, work in this area will include excavation of rock and soil, and installation of large diameter pipe. Work within this area of Doling Park is expected to take at least two months, but timing on this project varies based on the amount and type of rock below the surface, and weather. Any impacts to park parking or trail use will be announced.

    There is also a portion of work scheduled later for the east side of Doling Lake. Once complete, the Doling Park and Pea Ridge sanitary sewer will be able to manage larger amounts of wastewater with fewer overflows — great news for both Doling Park, where we have experienced manhole overflows, and our neighborhood. To learn more about this project, read more here.

    *** Due to safety concerns, the contractor has closed the west side parking area, in the lot closest to Giboney Cave. Please do not approach the work area or heavy machinery.
