Al Moody Park
Al Moody Park includes amenities such as a “tree house” play garden, a train engine for pre-school age children, half-court basketball, picnic tables and shelter, paved walkways, a wood fiber fitness trail, turf play area, winter sledding area and basic park amenities (trash receptacles, dog station, signs, bike racks, benches).
Approximately 60% of the site will preserve the natural character of the area. The rock ridge which bisects the park will be protected as an “area of special interest” or ASI, which will maintain the juniper, pine, rabbit brush and alpine current vegetation and associated wildlife such as quail, yellow marmots (rockchucks) and squirrels.
The “Roots and Shoots” organization has provided a butterfly garden along the primary trail utilizing native shrubs and perennials. Ensworth Elementary School is working on an “Art Discovery Trail” designed to stimulate creative thinking and movement. The school is also our “Adopt-a-Park” partner.
