Update: Storm clean up at Radnor Lake on May 5th, 2020
Due to the storms that impacted the Middle Tennessee Area on Sunday afternoon, we were fortunate that all of our hikers were found safely and accounted for by our park ranger staff by 6pm on Sunday evening.
Since that time, our park staff have been hard at work cleaning up the park trails, Otter Creek Road, ensuring that park operations continue to move forward such as COVID-19 cleaning of facilities for our park visitors and obtaining needed supplies for our clean up efforts, caring for our captive wildlife such as our birds of prey at the Barbara J. Mapp Aviary Center, etc….
Within 21 hours of the impact of this storm, all of the park trails and Otter Creek Road were clear/free of damaged trees and our park operations were back to normal with our park staff starting today (May 5th) to serve our park visitor needs.
While all of the park trails and Otter Creek Road are now open/safe for hiking, we still are without power at most of facilities including the East Parking Lot Restrooms and the Barbara J. Mapp Aviary Education Center.
Park management would like to thank Friends of Radnor Lake for their behind the scenes support of our clean up efforts the past 36 hours including posting social media updates on our clean up efforts and for all of our park visitors who stayed out of closed off areas while rangers were operating machinery, chainsaws, etc…..
Special thanks to our friends at Nashville Electric Service for their hard work the past 36 hours to get power restored to our visitor center-West Parking Area and one of our ranger residences!
