Prescribed burning at Pace Bend Park

Thursday, February 14, 2019 by Tai Moses

Pace Bend Park, at 2805 Pace Bend Road North, will be the site of a controlled burn that will take place on either Thursday or Friday this week. Some portions of the park such as the mountain biking and multi-use trails, Collier Boat Ramp, the coves on the west side, and sections of Pace Bend Road will be closed while the burn is being conducted. Prescribed burning reduces the danger of uncontrolled wildfires, removes invasive plants and enhances the health of native plant species. Since southwest winds are anticipated, northeast communities may experience some smoke drifting across the park and the lake.
