A lot of work has been put into returning Alexandria's Noonan Park to its cleaner state.

The pond that was once covered with algae and weeds is now beginning to clear up.


The city invested about $600 to have the park cleaned up and it is now beginning to show through.

Steve Volkey, of Creative Touch Landscape Design, helped aid in the cleaning of the pond. He kept up with regular treatments of the pond and continually monitored the pond's condition.
