The Hamilton Park Conservancy (HPC) presented to the City changes they are requesting to the Southwest Quadrant of Hamilton Park.  This will include but is not limited to:  removal of trees, additional landscaping, and barriers.  The HPNA requested drawings from the HPC and once obtained, we will post them here.

Shakespeare at Hamilton Park was blessed by wonderful weather!  Thanks to all who attended, the Trustees of the HPNA who planned the event, and those who donated at the event.
