A preliminary summary of a master plan for Portland's Deering Oaks park, prepare
A preliminary summary of a master plan for Portland's Deering Oaks park, prepared by consultants from Boston-based Halvorson Co., recommends that the city selectively cut down as many as 100 of the aging and dying trees in the park and replace them with a new generation of trees. It also recommends the hiring of park rangers who would patrol the park and enforce the rules and regulations. The Deering Oaks festival would be permitted, provided some activities, such as rides and amusements, be moved to other areas, such as Fitzpatrick Stadium and to the Marginal Way parking lot. Lists five goals of the master plan and how to accomplish them.
