Coonskin Park is back to normal after the damage it sustained following the June 29th derecho.
Kanawha County Parks and Recreation Director Jeff Hutchinson says a contractor hired to remove dozens of large trees finished the work last week.
"The roads are all cleaned up. The areas around the shelters and restrooms facilities are all cleaned up now," Hutchinson said.
The most damage at Coonskin was in the upper park area. Several large trees blocked the roads and trails. Hutchinson says in some cases the contractor completely removed the downed trees, but in the trail areas that were pushed to the side, making the trails passable at six feet wide.
The public won't be allowed in the upper park area until the spring. The area is closed every year during the winter months.
Hutchinson says the clean-up cost was $138,000. The parks system will be reimbursed by FEMA because Kanawha County was approved for federal disaster assistance following the derecho.
