Cincinnati crews ‘spring’ into action ahead of new season

City parks gearing up for spring

PRICE HILL, OH (FOX19) - Though the weather still may feel chilly at times, spring has sprung in Cincinnati and crews are springing into action.

The Cincinnati Parks Department oversees 5,000 acres of land and maintains them all year round, but over the next few months they say you’ll notice a lot more clean-up taking place.

The Cincinnati Parks Board Director Wade Walcott says for example the city clears off pathways in the winter and trees that fall down during snow storms.

Last year, it cost nearly $21 million to maintain the city’s park system.

Funding comes from places like the general fund, which includes taxpayer dollars and private donations.

They say volunteers can visit their website if they’re looking for ways to help.
