Ashley Pond: Plans include modificiations allowed within the project scope

By Arin McKenna

Final design plans for Ashley Pond Park renovations received a largely positive response from approximately 25 residents who attended an informational meeting Wednesday. 

Los Alamos County Parks Manager Dick McIntyre and project consultant George Radnovich, a principal of Sites Southwest, LLC, presented the design plans and responded to a wide range of questions. 

The main purpose of the redesign is the restoration of Ashley Pond, which is in the early stages of eutrophication — a depletion of oxygen in the water. The pond will be completely reconstructed with new aeration systems and wetlands as well as landscape buffers and drainage solutions to decrease runoff — all focused on improving water quality.

The 90 percent design review included modifications based on feedback from earlier meetings. The pond will retain a fountain at the center and a new waterfall that will help with aeration has been relocated to the western side of the pond, away from the location for a permanent stage.
