What Work is Taking Place? 

As early as Friday, January 31, 2020, pedestrians will be restricted from accessing the unpermitted pathways at Ben Nobleman Park. Secured temporary fencing and signage will be installed to protect the community’s fruit trees and increase pedestrian safety.

The Ben Nobleman Community Orchard began planting fruit trees in 2009. Since then, the community has been able to harvest pears, apples, cherries and plums. Increased pedestrian traffic along the park grounds is causing soil compaction, damaging the fruit tree’s roots.  Please help protect the fragile fruit trees at Ben Nobleman Park. Use the paved pathway only.
