The Sacramento County Department of Regional Parks is closing all parks within its jurisdiction, effective Wednesday, Jan. 4. With the storm that just passed saturating the area's soil, Regional Parks is preparing for the likely event that gusts from the upcoming storm system will bring down a large number of trees.
The American River Multi-Use and Dry Creek Parkway trails will also be closed, so bicycle commuters are urged to find alternative routes.
This closure is expected to last through Thursday, Jan. 5, with the potential to extend into Friday, Jan. 6, depending on weather and park conditions.
Rangers and maintenance teams have begun to alert people in the affected areas so that they are aware of the hazard posed by fallen trees.
