City Park project still in grass-roots stages

Clawson parks are greening up their land with grass and getting ready for the 4th of July festivities.


The grass on the west side of Clawson’s City Park is decently plush where athletes need it to be: in the outfield of the ball diamonds, and in the middle of the football and soccer stadium.

Spectators aren’t so free to roam, however, with large patches of dirt surrounding the newly-installed walking path in between the city’s sporting facilities.

Orange snow fences are in place to keep people from walking across soil where hydra grass seed is being planted, according to Mickey Alderman, director of Clawson’s Parks and Recreation Department.

“For the most part, it seems like people are staying off (the fenced off areas),” Alderman said. “It doesn’t deter from use of any athletic facilities. We’ve still had soccer games on the stadium field and baseball and softball games.”

Alderman said it’s hoped the grass will grow in time for the city’s Fourth of July celebrations at City Park, on Elmwood Avenue, between Main Street and Crooks.
