CEDAR PARK, Texas (KXAN) — Cedar Park crews are clearing broken tree limbs and debris from park facilities after last week’s ice storm.
Some parks and trails were reopened Monday, but others remain closed for the public’s safety.
Jenny Huerta, public information officer for the City of Cedar Park said crews have been working to clean up the damage as quickly as possible.
She said large parks like Elizabeth Milburn Park and Veterans Park are taking longer to clear than others simply from the number of trees broken by the heavy ice.
“If people can only imagine what they’re seeing in their own lawns and really magnify that,” Huerta said.
The city encourages the public to keep checking its social media pages for the latest on these park closures.
In its latest update Monday evening, these parks were now open:
- Buttercup Creek Park (tennis court now open/unlocked)
- Nelson Ranch Park (tennis court now open/unlocked)
- Oakwood Glen Park
- Oakmont Forest Park
- Prize Oaks Park
- Lone Tree Park
- Ranch at Cypress Creek Park (Rachel Ridge)
- Carriage Hills #2 Park
- Town Center Park (trail open)
Huerta says the city hopes to have all its parks open as usual in the next few days and asks the public to still be careful as new damage could happen after a park has been cleared.
She says any new debris in a park, play area, or walking trail can be reported through the city’s website.
