Federal officials have finished significant cleanup work at Clark Center Park after the winter weather a few weeks ago, and they are re-opening the park.
John Shewairy, assistant manager for administration in the U.S. Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge Office, said workers have roped off one area of the 80-acre park where a large tree fell. They won’t be able to clear that area until the ground dries up.
Also, one of the walking trails will remain closed for a bit more until workers remove debris.
“All other areas of the Park are open,” Shewairy said Thursday.
Clark Center Park is in south Oak Ridge. It’s normally open all year, but federal officials temporarily closed it a few weeks ago to assess any damage to trees caused by recent ice and snow, and to give workers time to remove any potential risks, such as trees that were ready to fall.
