The Heart of Havasu Park Looking to Xeriscape landscaping.

The Lake Havasu City leadership program will be seeking funds at this weekend's Balloon Festival for the "Heart of Havasu Park".  The Havasu Leadership Development Class proposed a park project that can save the city as much as $15,000 a year on water costs.  The plan will replace 21,000 square feet of sod with a Xeriscape landscape. 

A Chamber of Commerce spokesperson says the park will be funded through donations, with the largest fundraiser being the Balloon Festival and Fair at the Beachfront Resort.  A co-project leader said that they will be selling t-shirts and taking orders for stepping stones.  You can get yours from the Chamber of Commerce booth this weekend. 

The entire project must be completed by May 31st.  The purpose of the project is to reduce the cost of watering in the city.  It currently costs between $800 and $1500 per acre-foot to water.  Therefore, by removing the sod, it would reduce water usage by at least 70%. 

Having Xeriscape as landscaping will allow for minimal water usage and utilizes the use of native plants.  By living in the desert, we don't get to conserve water that much and this project will allow us to improve the look of the city and save money on water costs. 

The Chamber of Commerce is set to take bids from contractors for the project in the up and coming weeks.  They are also working with area artists and contractors for other designs.  We are all set to begin fundraising for the t-shirts and pathway stones and other donations.  To become a sponsor or to make a donation, you can contact the Chamber of Commerce at 855-4115.
