Park reopens to the public

Published 10:49am Thursday, June 6, 2013

Albert Lea park staff opened the gate Wednesday to the entrance of the western portion of Bancroft Bay Park. The park area had been closed since early May, shortly after a snowstorm dumped a foot of snow in Albert Lea, causing damage to trees and limbs citywide. City workers and a contractor had been clearing broken branches and weakened trees over the past few weeks.
