Since 2008, basketball courts, paths, and a gravel driveway have been added.  The surroundings have changed markedly.

This station is not compliant, but temperatures are reported at Latest Weather Observations.    Luckily, unreliable temperatures from here are not used to adjust data at Acorn sites.
