A group walks down a trail in Cavitt Creek Park south of Glide on Wednesday. A recent timber sale will allow Douglas County to harvest trees at the park.

The Douglas County Parks Department announced Tuesday that Cavitt Creek County Park near Glide is now closed until May 15.

The department will be working with a contractor to remove about 140 trees it has identified as hazards.

The 13-acre day use park is located seven miles south of Glide, on Cavitt Creek Road. It features a ball field, picnic area and access to Cavitt Creek.

The caption under the photo tells the real story: " A recent timber sale will allow Douglas County to harvest trees at the park." Our commissioners at work.

But Rocky Houston said it was not a timber sale but a hazard tree removal project. Then why are they removing live trees as well ? Is it possible they are not being truthful?
