Hollowview Park flowers

Wildflowers abound around the bike path near Hollowview Park. The red, white and blue flowers bring thoughts of July 4 and lazy summer afternoons. To see the flowers, take the path between Devil's Glen Park and Hollowview Park. Hats off to the Park and Rec department for planting the flowers. For more photos, click read more.

PV 5.21.01 and 5.23.01 Board Minutes

Bill Moylan commented that he was pleased to see that the tennis courts
were going to be resurfaced. He asked if the courts were going to be
lit. Dr. Barber responded that we plan to provide lights pending
funding support from grants and the Bettendorf Park Board. Mr. Moylan
recommended wiring all 8 courts for lights and planting trees around the
periphery of the courts to serve as a natural wind break.
Bids on this
project will be due May 29. The project's completion date is August 15.

Palmer Hills landscaping.

The new 9th hole on Palmer Hills Golf Course should protect drivers on Middle Road from errant drives. The new berm and over a dozen new evergreens should also help to block the view of the road to golfers.

New sculpture near Family Museum

A new sculpture was recently spotted near the Family Museum. The Sculpture adorns the end of the parking lot, and appears to represent the Earth, Sun and Moon, being held by green hands. What this means, I'm not sure, but it is interesting to look at. If anyone knows more about this sculpture, please comment and let us know!
