Why improve the overlook area?
While the overlook area is loved by many visitors to Kletzsch Park, it is also very degraded. Much of the grass and ground cover is gone, leaving bare soil and exposed tree roots. Severe compaction of the treeroots is also occurring. This improvement will help repair the natural landscape while developing an overlook that serves the large number of visitors. The re-design of the overlook areas will provide universal access and include a planting plan with new native trees, shrubs, ground cover, and riparian plantings. This project presents an incredible opportunity to diversify the vegetation, enhance the available resources for wildlife, and provide the community with a beautiful overlook.
