Save Water

As you all know, we're in the midst of a very serious drought and it's up to everyone to do what they can to conserve water. Of course the City is diligent in seeking ways to reduce water use, and a lot of that effort has focused on our parks. Although we already do a lot to conserve water in the parks, we are now going to take another measure in that direction - turning off the water features in our parks' playgrounds.
