The Oak Ridge Recreation and Parks Department has temporarily closed Cedar Hill Playground due to a tree hazard. The playground will remain closed until crews are able to fully address the situation, a press release said.
“Crews have been working to safely trim the affected tree, but additional work is required,” the press release said. “Safety fencing and caution tape have been installed around the playground, and signs are being posted to notify the public of the temporary closure.”
All residents and visitors should avoid the playground area until further notice, the release said.
Questions about the closure at Cedar Hill Park can be directed to the Oak Ridge Civic Center front desk at (865) 425-3450.
More information will be added as it becomes available.
