This morning at the park. Thanks to John Wolff for cleaning up the last graffiti – and giving directions for how he did it.

The Easter Mallard

April 5th, 2015 by Mike

This Easter morning two Mallards were visiting our park – adding a 38th species to the Maple Leaf Reservoir Park bird list.

These male and female Mallards are the first waterfowl we’ve seen swimming in the park. (The bird list includes Trumpeter Swan and Great Blue Heron, but they were seen flying overhead.)

Happy Easter!

Easter Eggs return Saturday to Maple Leaf Park

April 2nd, 2015 by Mike

The 2014 egg hunt, before the deluge.

Maple Leaf’s Lux Communities is planning its second annual Easter Egg Hunt this Saturday at Maple Leaf Reservoir Park.

This is Micah from Lux Communities. We are having an Egg Hunt again this year. It is a free event for the community. It is this Saturday, April 4th from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. We will have age-graded egg hunts for children ages 2-10.

Their first hunt last year was quite a success.

Lakeview Free Methodist Church, which in the past has sponsored a hunt on the church’s 15th Avenue Northeast campus, appears to this year be holding a Neighborhood Carnival on May 30th.

Evil doings at Maple Leaf Reservoir Park

March 21st, 2015 by Mike

This morning the east side of upper Maple Leaf Reservoir Park looks like a crowd of drunken golfers left huge divots in the turf.

Dozens of them.


Also, somebody tagged the fence at the north entrance.

12th man returns: Maple Leaf Reservoir Park Feb. 1

January 7th, 2015 by Mike

Mandi emails:

“Hi there. I was wondering if we could starting posting messages about our 2nd annual (*:) happy) 12th man rally in the park.

Of course, on Feb. 1st at 12:00 p.m.

It’d be great for the main businesses on Roosevelt to post flyers too. I can do those and distribute.”

Last year’s rally story is here.

And now a lost ring – on a circuitous path

December 30th, 2014 by Mike

Jessica emails overnight:

Could you please help us? My husband lost a silver wedding-type-band this afternoon around 1 p.m.

Unfortunately, the possible area is pretty large. It’s somewhere between the corner of 12th Avenue Northeast and Northeast 98th Street and the upper Maple Leaf Park — and then he walked around the park path, across Roosevelt Way Northeast and up to Cloud City.

The ring has a distinctive vine-pattern etched deeply around it. The value is nothing except extremely sentimental (brought back from Italy 20 years ago!).

On the extreme off-chance anyone sees it or has it, we would love to see it again!

Thank you and Happy New Year!

Gonna be chilly through New Year's Eve

December 29th, 2014 by Mike

A frontal line moving south produced a spectacular sunset tonight over Maple Leaf Reservoir Park.

The forecast calls for lows of 25 degrees for the next three nights, through New Year’s Eve.

Days should remain sunny, but cold, through New Year’s Day .
