Willamalane reminds park visitors that fire danger is HIGH as we celebrate the Fourth of July holiday. While enjoying the parks over the weekend, we urge everyone to be vigilant and help protect our public lands. And please remember that no fireworks are allowed on Willamalane Park and Recreation District property.
To minimize the potential for vandalism over the holiday, all portable toilets and the fenced tennis courts will be closed July 3-5. The restrooms at Meadow Park and Guy Lee Park will also be closed.
"We recognize that these steps may be an inconvenience to park users, but people understand once we tell them we do this to protect public property," said Joel Miller, park services division director. "We appreciate the public's understanding."
We at Willamalane wish everyone a joyous and safe Independence Day. Have a great time at Springfield Utility Board's Light of Liberty at Island Park.
