Two more swans might join the large population of ducks and geese living at City Park.
"The public likes seeing them," Parks Superintendent Junior Mason said. "I think they're a nice addition to the park."
City officials have kept swans at the park for more than 30 years, and Mason said there are two there now. He said some have died of old age, and new swans were purchased.
The male and female at City Park could be joined by another pair this summer.
A pair of swans costs about $750, Mason said, and there also is a small cost to feed them over the winter, along with some fees for veterinarian care.
"We do have them fixed, and have their wings clipped so they don't fly away," he said.
The swans are taken to the veterinarian for care about once per year, unless officials notice a problem with the fowl. Baby swans have been born at City Park, but not for many years, Mason said.
