Snow Removal Changes to City Trails and Parks
The City of Becker has been evaluating their trail and park system. The City feels that we need to make a strong effort to keep the trails open to encourage year-round usage of City Parks and Trails by the citizens of Becker.
With this notion said, the City will be clearing the blacktop trail on 27th Avenue, to provide access to the Sherburne County Historical Center, Oak Savannah Park and ultimately Becker City Park. In addition, the blacktop trail, on Brenda Blvd., from Edgewood Street to Joseph Avenue, and Joseph Avenue to the cul-de-sac on Joseph Avenue will be cleared to provide access to Becker City Park.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding this matter, please contact the Public Works Department at 763-200-4275.
