Fresno County reopens Avocado Lake Park following hazardous tree removal

 FRESNO, CA – Fresno County has reopened Avocado Lake Park after completing work to remove hundreds of hazardous trees. The park had been closed as crews worked to remove more than 800 trees that had been left damaged or destroyed due to the extended period of drought.

The tree removal work at Avocado Lake and other County parks over the last several months has been part of the County’s ongoing efforts to address high tree mortality resulting from the drought and ensure public safety.

At this time all Fresno County parks are open to visitors. For the latest information on park hours, please contact the Fresno County Resources and Parks Division at (559) 600-3004 or visit http://www.co.fresno.ca.us/departments/public-works-planning/parks
