Located at the north end of Fifth Street in Arbuckle is “Triangle Park”. With its white rock, deodora tress, shrubbery and cement benches – it was quite a tradition for Arbuckle local, Joyce Dawley, to raise and lower the American flag that would fly on the park’s flagpole in the 1970’s through the early 1990’s.
Today, “Triangle Park” is getting a facelift from its drab, overgrown state.
The Colusa County Garden Club of Arbuckle has taken on the project a little over three years ago, maintaining the weeds and trimming bushes. However, their efforts were overwhelmed with the overgrowth of trees, shrubs and weeds.
Garden Club member, Bonnie Ehrke decided to bring in some extra help and contacted Richard’s Tree service to help with their efforts.
“I spoke with Fred Cox of Richard’s Tree Service and he offered to help us clear-out and cleanup the property,” said Ehrke.
For the last several weeks, Richard’s Tree Service have been clearing out overgrown shrubs, and trees, in the park.
“We hope to replant in the future with drought tolerant shrubs and other plants,” said Ehrke, “we also hope to add signage welcoming people to Arbuckle.”
Individuals helping with the project included, Colusa County Garden Club of Arbuckle Members: Barbara Scheimer, Cynthia Peterson, and Bonnie Ehrke; Arbuckle Revitalization president, Debbie Charter; Arbuckle Public Utility District employee, Jim Scheimer; Community Member Peggy Arens, and Colusa County Supervisor Mark Marshall.
