    Half of it is fairly new and the rest is very old. I would say I can mow 80% of it with riders and walk behinds. There is a large flat area at the top and flat at the bottom and Inbetween is hills.

    The parks director tells me it takes 4 guys two weeks to complete they use two walk behinds and rider. Two 60's and a 48.
