Digging Up Dirt: An update on San Marco Refresh 2.0
Mock-ups created by Liberty Landscape Supply show details for what the new landscaping of Balis Park could look like after work is completed this month as part of San Marco Refresh 2.0.

San Marco residents and visitors will see changes coming to San Marco Square as crews will begin re-landscaping work in Balis Park in the early days of November as part of San Marco Refresh 2.0.

The Resident News reported last month on this collaborative initiative between the San Marco Preservation Society (SMPS), San Marco Merchants Association and the City (via District 5 City Councilmember Joe Carlucci), which will include the installation of new Bigbelly Element trash cans and aesthetic enhancements to the rectangular fountain in Balis Park near the gazebo, along with the new landscaping.

Carlucci said landscape crews are expected to complete Balis Park’s new landscaping by Thanksgiving. He added the additional work scheduled for the Refresh initiative, including the fountain enhancements and fresh paint for the gazebo, will begin in January to avoid interfering with events in the Square during the holiday season.

“We’re very excited to get the work under,” said SMPS President David Paulk. “There are a number of organizations working together to improve the Square. We are working quickly so that the project will be completed by the Christmas shopping season, which is such an important time to area merchants and a busy time in the Square.”

The company contracted to complete the landscaping updates is Liberty Landscape Supply.
