The first of two planned fungicide spray treatments on London plane trees at Heritage Park will take place Thursday, May 2 at 5 a.m. The work is weather dependent, and will help reduce a foliar fungal disease and promote tree health.

The temporary partial closure will affect entrances to Heritage Park from Marathon Park and the switchback from the upper part of Capitol Campus.
