The blue line around the park indicates a walking trail paved with wood chips. Here is an example of what the wildflowers will look like after a few years of maturing.
Reduced Fee Yard Maintenance for disabled homeowners or senior citizens with disabilities:
In an effort to restore some of the beauty and luster that was once the hallmark of the Seven Hills community, SHAG is offering reduced fee yard maintenance, making it affordable to Senior residents and those with disabilities that find it overwhelming to do this type of work. Our basic service includes cutting grass, edging, and cleaning up after we cut. Additional service includes bush trimming, light landscaping, and planting flowers. Price for basic service starts at $25 depending on the size of the yard. All additional services will be priced well below market value. For more information please download this file.
All fees collected will be used to help fund SHAG programs and future events.
