2010 - The soil was tested for contamination from arsenic and lead associated with the Asarco Plume and no cleanup was found to be needed. Glen Rollins (Tacoma Pierce County Health Dept.) was responsible for testing and Amy Hargrove (Dept. of Ecology) was in charge of the cleanup program. Funding for testing was in the state budget.

2007 - Cherry trees lining Proctor Street replaced with hybrid flowering dogwood trees. The cherry trees were stunted and sickly and had to be pruned away from the street to avoid cars. The dogwoods have a more upright shape, are more tolerant of the heavy soil in the park and have good fall color as well as spring flowers.
