The landscape beautification portion of the project added over 160,000 square- feet of green vegetation with over 200 trees, shrubs, ground cover, and hardscape in the median island along the parkway areas on Magic Mountain Parkway and The Old Road.
In addition, the project included installation of vine trellises along Magic Mountain Parkway and a decorative monument serving as a gateway entrance to the City near the northbound I-5 on–ramp.
“The landscape beautification project provides an excellent entrance to our City and is a terrific amenity for our community,” said Mayor Marsha McLean.
