Controlled Burn in lower City Park Monday, December 23.

Beginning around noon on Monday, December 23, a controlled burn will take place in portions of the lower City Park (south of the South Shelter). The burn is part of the City’s ongoing efforts to increase management practices to improve the woodlands. No vehicles will be allowed on the tower road. Hikers shall stay on the road and away from any fire/smoke.
Controlled burns will be an annual practice in City Park lower portion during late fall through early spring as conditions allow. Other practices that we have implemented as part of our adopted City Park Woodlands Conservation Plan include removing a large amount of honeysuckle (invasive species) and thinning out the timber by removing some trees. Please contact the WPRD Office with any questions/concerns at 462-3258.
