Dry conditions damaged Betty Krouse Park

QUESTION: What has happened to Betty Krouse Park? The grass is dead and there are so many weeds. If I were a relative of Mrs. Krouse and drove by there I would be really sad.

ANSWER: The park didn’t fare well through the drought, a dry winter and water restrictions, according to Kurt Schroeder, parks maintenance, trails and open space manager. In addition, it’s a popular park that sees a lot of use, especially during the school year. Schroeder said, “We have over-seeded already and once this is established, we will apply a herbicide to thin out the weeds. We acknowledge it could look better, and are working to get it there.” Krouse, for whom the park on East Cache la Poudre Street is named, served on the city council from 1963 to 1975 and was the first female vice mayor.
