Security and Beautification

Field Observations Report

A comprehensive assessment of the buildings and the grounds of the site was completed in July 2015. This study documented the condition of the structures and recommended various approaches to caring for the site, including security and consistent maintenance.


M-NCPPC maintains a no-trespassing policy for the 60-acre site and has installed a comprehensive surveillance system. Park Police presence will continue with random patrols and an on-site Park Police residence.

Landscape Maintenance

In 2015, M-NCPPC conducted a comprehensive clean-up of the site including the removal of 26 dead or dying trees, mowing, brush clearing, tree pruning, fence clearing, and the removal of debris from the roadways. Regular on-going landscape maintenance of the interior roads and lawns has continued throughout 2016 and 2017.
