THE LAKES ARE GETTING ATTENTION!
NEW UPDATE: We are waiting for our permit to be approved for stocking Lakes 1&2 with grass eating carp. Carp fish are beneficial in keeping the weeds & algae growth under control.
The condition & health of our Lakes in Queens Park requires ongoing maintenance. In order to improve their condition, we have consulted a couple of different marine & lake maintenance companies and Collier County. In addition, we approached a 3rd party water testing company to assess our lake water. The results indicate that our phosphate level in Lake 2 (Kent Dr) is elevated & needs to be addressed.
Phosphate is found in lawn fertilizer, so we are asking ALL our residents to talk to their landscapers about any fertilizer (or weed n feed) they might be using. In short, if the middle number of three numbers found on fertilizer is higher than two (2), the product contains too much phosphate.
In addition, please make sure your landscaper is NOT directing the grass clippings along the shore into the lake. If you live on Lake 2, Lake 1, the Marsh Lake, or not on a lake at all, the runoff from your grass ends up in all our Lakes. Therefore, we need the help of ALL our residents to rectify this problem. As many residents are aware, there is an expanded level of maintenance going on to deal with weed growth & algae blooms that have been unsightly & problematic. This will continue in the future as we seek to manage the lake issues. Your Board of Directors is taking this very seriously and we want to partner with our residents to keep our Lakes looking beautiful. Please help us by speaking with your landscaper and using the correct fertilizer:

Thank you for your patience. We are taking this issue seriously and are looking into new ways to improve the water condition.
If you have any questions or concerns about one of our lakes please contact: Mark Cunningham at 480-616-2102.
YOUR QUEENS PARK HOA BOARD OF DIRECTORS
RESIDENTS: Please DO NOT throw anything down our sewer drains in the streets! Whatever you throw down them ends up in our lakes. We have found dog waste bags in the lakes and most recently paint. Please respect the health of our community and our beautiful lakes. Thank You!
Your 2021 Queens Park Board is:
