Barrington Park improvements (July 2015 update)

Barrington Park has been selected for a city-sponsored tree planting this fall, to add roughly 60 trees. We’ll probably have a planting day volunteer event, and then the city will make sure the trees are watered and maintained until they are established.

Future desired improvements might include an accessible route from parking lots to the soccer field, a water fountain near the Slayton/Rundberg cap metro stop, and additional picnic tables.

Contact the neighborhood team if you’d like to help, with volunteers or through a business sponsorship.
