This summer, TD Summer Reading Club helps kids find and explore their passions, and encourages them to share their delight with others along the way. Through books, programs, and conversations, TD Summer Reading Club kids can dive into areas that already fascinate them, dabble in others for new inspiration and discover that their passions have the potential to transform them, their friends and their world. Kids play Wolfie-o-poly to find great books to read, earn lots of prizes and collect stickers for their logbooks. Interact with the TD Summer Reading Club website with a link from our website. With club times every morning, afternoon and evening it’s easy to drop in to play, enter our weekly draw for great prizes and participate in our weekly scavenger hunt. Program runs from June 2 to September 1, 2018.

For more information contact the Parks and Recreation Department at 519-539-2382 Ext. 4101. Watering Young Street Trees The goal is moist soil as far as 8 to 12 inches below the surface. • For the first three years, young trees need weekly watering from mid-April to mid-October.
• Probe your soil below the surface before watering. If the soil feels moist and sticky, allow it to dry for several more days before watering. If the soil feels dry and crumbly, water deeply once a week. • Water deeply by setting your hose on a slow trickle at the base of the tree or use a soaker hose around the tree. On average, your tree will need 15 gallons of water per week. • Remember that lawn watering will not replace the need to deeply water young trees. Mulching Young Trees 4 feet in diameter, 4 inches from the trunk, and 4 inches deep The City of Woodstock places mulch around the new street tree, but not around the trunk which creates a healthy environment for the tree. Please follow the next guidelines.
• Remember the 4x4x4 rule: spread mulch in a 4-foot diameter around the tree, 4 inches away from the trunk, and 4 inches deep.
Recreation & Leisure Guide Spring/Summer 2018 PARKS & OPEN SPACES 79 • Mulch will keep soil temperatures cool, retain water, and discourage weeds. It will slowly decompose and should be replenished as needed during the first three growing years. • Fertilizer is not recommended at planting time.Trees come with enough fertilizer from the nursery, and over time mulch will provide new nutrients to the tree. • Avoid using “weed and feed” fertilizers.They contain herbicides that can damage or kill young trees.
Pruning All pruning will be done by the City of Woodstock Parks Department staff.Any damages done to a street tree by a homeowner pruning may include a fine of the removal and full cost of a replacement tree. Please contact the Park and Recreation office at 519‑539‑2382 Ext. 4101 with any tree inquiries. Weeding and Protecting Keeping your tree out of harm’s way • Weeds and grass compete with trees for water and nutrients.They are also allopathic (they produce a chemical which inhibits other plant growth, including trees).
• Do not use weed trimmers or lawn mowers near the base of trees. Hand-pull weeds instead. When the thin bark of young trees is injured, the bark will split and die back.This can cause disease, unwanted pests, and the sun to scald the bark, resulting in decay or death. • For optimal tree growth and health, keep a four foot circle around your young tree clear of grass, weeds, or other plant life.

Parks Projects to Look For in 2018 The City of Woodstock Parks Department undertakes multiple improvement projects each year. The City of Woodstock is continually working to improve parks, trails, and recreation facilities, designing and maintaining them to meet current and future community needs.The following projects will be undertaken during the 2018 budget year.
• Hunting Estates Park playground improvement. • Shanna Larsen Park basketball ½ court. • Donald Thompson rink hut revitalization and new community garden. • Ludington Park new playground. • Charlie Tatham / Peace Park revitalization. • Southside Park gazebo gardens and water feature revitalization. • Southside Park outdoor drinking fountain and bottle filling station. • Southside Park East and West baseball diamond renovations. Planning process for new parks Parks and pathways play a key role in enhancing Woodstock residents’ quality of life.They contribute to residents’ physical and psychological health, enhance civic pride and strengthen local identity. Parks and pathways also support the greenspace network, enhance the City’s natural beauty and promote active transportation. In order to achieve customer service excellence, the City of Woodstock strives to provide new and growing communities with excellent parks and pathways that meet the active and passive recreational needs of residents.
The success of parks and pathways begins in the early stages of planning, during the pre-application consultation stage and again at the subdivision review stage, when park blocks and pathways are selected and acquired.The size and shape of a park block helps define which facilities can be accommodated while the location of pathway locks helps provide an interconnected greenspace network. The City’s annual park budgeting exercise, as well as park design and construction process, are key factors that influence the delivery of new parks.
