The Palo Cedro Community Park experienced major damage to its property during last week’s extreme winter snow storm.  The park had to close its gates due to unsafe conditions with down trees and hanging limbs.

Last weekend, after sending out a plea for cleanup, the community overwhelming responded readily to help.  “Community turnout was phenomenal,” said park board president Ron Marin. He added, “Approximately 35 to 45 people showed up with chain saws, tractors, trailers and other tools to get a great start to a very sizable project/park clean up.”  During the weekend, the group of volunteers cleared trees and brush that were either burned or chipped.

Marin said the effort proved to be quite successful, however, there remains a lot more to be done to get the park ready to be open to the public.

Another park cleanup day is slated for this weekend, March 2 from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. with the same type of activity and tools to clean up the fallen debris.

Some of the items requested to bring if available:
– Chain Saws
– Trailers
– Clippers
– Tree trimmers
– Ladders
– Shovels
– Fire Extinguishers
– Rakes
– Blowers
– Wood chippers (If possible)
