DeGarmo Park has been in development as a great open park for the north side of town. When the newly laid grass began to show a yellow dried out look, people began to question the integrity of the fields. As it turns out, it is suppose to look like that. The grass goes dormant in the winter, which presents its yellow color usually associated with dried dead grass, and will regain the color back in the spring and summer months. So not to worry... hopefully. Because the yellow really doesn't look right.
