Repairs to be Done at Two Regional Parks


Beginning Monday, September 22 and through Friday, October 3, Park District staff will be repairing the “Upper Neck” trail connecting the Albany Plateau to the Bulb at McLaughlin Eastshore State Park. The work will involve adding soil cover to the landfill and grading the surface for improved drainage as well as to provide the public and service crews a smooth accessible surface.

​Due to the renovation and the presence of trucks and heavy equipment, the area will be closed to park visitors. All dogs must be on a leash and kept away from the working zone.

​Visitors to Del Valle Regional Park will also see improvements at the park, after the parking lots are resurfaced. Beginning Monday, September 29, and through Friday, October 3 all parking lots and the campground will be “slurry sealed” to create a new wearing surface to protect the life of the parking areas.

​From Monday, Oct 6 to Wednesday, Oct 8 workers will be adding stripes and arrows on the new parking lots’ surfaces. All working areas will be closed to visitors, except for the Marina parking lot and boat launch, which will remain open and will not be impacted by this work.
