Page Park roads closed to vehicles

Melting snow, ice has softened roads

DIXON – Vehicle access to Page Park has been closed.

Melting ice and snow has softened the road, so gates to the park will remain closed until the roads firm up, said Deb Carey, executive director of the Dixon Park District.

Pedestrians and bicyclists can still use the roads.

“In an effort keep the park looking nice [we’re closing the roads],” she said. “I know it’s an inconvenience, but it’s what’s best for the park.”

Earlier this week, the district closed Lowell Park’s roads to vehicle traffic. The roads are open to bicycles but will remain closed to vehicles until snow and ice melt and the surfaces firm.

The bicycle trails within Lowell Park are closed.

If the weather warms up and the roads strengthen, they could be reopened soon, Carey said. She said she didn’t want taxpayers to pay for fixing the roads if it could be avoided.
