Community Volunteers at Tienken Park for Clean-Up Sunday, May 1st

Over 30 volunteers spent 2 hours bagging trash, raking leaves, and moving dead branches.  Many of the volunteers had never been in the park and commented on how the property was a beautiful destination for residents wishing to enjoy the outdoors.  The park has a lot to offer with its forest, wetlands, and a large open space that was once a horse pasture.  According to the Rochester Hills Park & Forestry Director, Mike Hartner, the city will now maintain the park by regularly moving the open spaces and trails.

Rochester Hills residents are encouraged to get their hands dirty for a good cause.  A spring cleanup for the undeveloped Tienken Park (next to Adams High School) is scheduled for 2 PM Sunday, May 1st. The 10-acre park is used by local residents each year for exercise, dog walking, and to enjoy the outdoors. Once a proposed site for the city’s water reservoir project, the Rochester Hills Parks Department is now planning on creating walkable trails and providing regular maintenance to the property. The goal for the cleanup is to remove litter, clear brush, and prepare the property on Tienken Road for the anticipated increased use this summer. The effort will dovetail one by local residents working with the city’s Parks Department to develop a concept plan for the property for its future as a community park (see a proposed plan here).
