In keeping with the rest of the Springfield City water conservation effort, the Springfield Park District says it will do its part. It’s cutting back on watering turf at the Botanical Garden, decreasing the watering of park boulevards, and they say they will focus on only watering newly-plated trees.
The waterfall at the Lincoln Park Lagoon has been shut down, and the fountain around the Carillon has been shut down until leaks can be repaired.
Golfers may notice that the greenest grass will be on the fairway – watered every other day – and the greens. Non-playing and rough areas, including the driving range at Lincoln Greens will not be watered at all.
