Are we sure this isn't the Eiffel Tower getting a RMC conversion? I read it on screamscape.

The only thing ash is useful for is making baseball bats. Plant some Poplars.

I'm sure this is the first time an arborist has been inside KD in a very long time to diagnose this issue. If the issue was really "Emeral" (they made a typo, it's Emerald) Ash Borers, it would still take quite a while of neglect and zero treatment for the damage to reach a point of total canopy loss like most of the ones around the Eiffel Tower currently. Not surprising, I've noticed the trees' unhealthiness since 2014. Still wondering if they are going to do anything about that dead tree in the middle of the pathway in Planet Snoopy, which I've actually seen in marketing material now.

Kings Dominion is making some serious advances in their landscaping department, and once all of the trees start to fill in, Kings Dominion will look absolutely beautiful. Really, anyone who calls Kings Dominion a "concrete jungle" at this point is just plain crazy. Cool

This thread will for posting whatever landscaping you see (good or bad) that you'd like to share, much like CK's thread about Busch Gardens.

So, here are a few shots I nabbed during opening weekend. I'm an armature photographer for sure, but I'm pretty happy with how these turned out. Enjoy!

Not the neatest shrubbery, but I like this shot with the waterfall in the background.

Image

Image

Image
I freaking love International Street.

Image

Image
It's only a matter of time before lily pads abound over here.

Image
Ugly now, but give it a month or so and this area will look completely different.

Image

Image
Looking down Center Street to the new floral clock.

Image

More to come soon... Cool

Old Virginia has gotten some love. Shenandoah Lumber Co. was looking great with flowers surrounding the queue and the flume itself.

Image
The combination of dense shrubbery and scenic water features are one of the reasons why Old Virginia is such a relaxing village in the park.

Image
The summertime rendition of the floral clock is looking brighter and fuller than before! It sure is purty (perty?).

Image
Earlier this season I was concerned that since it wasn't its inaugural season anymore, it wasn't getting any nice landscaping, but after long last it has been given a bright blast of flowers and shrubbery!

Image
I'll never get enough pictures of this.

Image
At first this worried me, because I thought this was a patch of dying, forgotten springtime flowers...

Image
...but upon closer inspection, I discovered they're just summertime flowers getting ready to bloom.

Image
Yay for Planet Snoopy landscaping!

Image
I sure envy Snoopy for getting to live in such a beautiful area. I love the patches of landscaping surrounding the riverbed.

Image

Image
It's not as intricate as it was last season, but it's still pleasant.

Image
One of the great things about being a junior fan is you can enjoy Planet Snoopy as long as you like without looking creepy. Tongue

Image
Joe Cool, playin' it cool.

Image
Woodstock topiaries guard the shrubbery surrounding the Peanuts Playhouse stage.

"On Halloween night, the Great Pumpkin rises from his pumpkin patch and flies through the air with his bag of toys to all the children."

Image
"There he is! There he is! It's the Great Pumpkin! He's rising out of the pumpkin patch!"

Image
Ahoy, shrubbery ho!

Image
I love all the water features in Planet Snoopy. This pond looks great with all the new flowers.

Image
Much like the flowers by the Planet Snoopy entrance, the flowers in front of Dinner Bell are just starting to bloom.

Image
Outer Hanks: Shrubbery Shack.

Image
The park seems to be having a fungus problem.

Image
The detailed architecture of Victoria's Pizza and the Victoria Gardens provide an excellent backdrop for another Candy Apple Grove picture.

Image
Let's wrap things up with a picture of Candy Apple Grove's centerpiece, the Carousel.

Whelp, that's it for now, but honestly these pictures do no justice to how stunning the park is. If I were shown these pictures in 2010, I would have laughed and applauded whoever showed them to me for their Photoshop skills. It makes me so happy to see my beloved home park looking so full of life. Ride Right on, Kings Dominion, right on!

It's such a shame that all of this is a thing of the past. We should do a before and after Joeys.
