Taking advantage of low water in the Deschutes, result of draining of the Mirror pond, a city crew today was engaged in the preliminary improvement of Pageant park, facing the Deschutes from the west side of the river adjacent to Drake park footbridge approach. A rock wall has been constructed at the river edge, and low places in the new park were being filled. Willows on the river edge have been cut down.
Home owners whose lawns front on the Mirror pond from the west side are also taking advantage of the low water to repair and clean water fronts.
From city officers today came the complaint that some children are damaging the Drake park waterfront rock facing, by removing rocks. Some of these rocks are apparently being carried to the footbridge, to be dropped Into the river. Others are being pushed into tho mud.
