The additional rain this week is further slowing the city's efforts to keep the grass trimmed at Lubbock parks. Normally parks are on a seven to 10 day schedule for care. With the downpour in May and the few extra inches this week, crews are getting to parks every 21 days making the already tall grass even harder to maintain.
"The grass is really thick and tall. We've raised the mowing heights so that will make it a little bit faster for them. Then when we have rains like we had the other day we have to wait for that to dry before they can mow," Bridget Faulkenberry, director of Parks and Recreation said.
Faulkenberry added mowers are working seven days a week to keep the parks clean cut for you to enjoy.
