15 Signs of Spring

April 15, 2016 | Amy McMillan

If the return of robins is the first true sign of Spring in Michigan, the return of potholes may be the second. Just like streets, roads, and parking lots everywhere in our fair state, potholes and puddles are “springing” up on Genesee County Parks’ gravel roads and in parking lots throughout our entire 11,000 acres.  These conditions make for a wet, bumpy, muddy, ride through your favorite Genesee County Parks.

Our skilled, hardworking mechanic team has our grading equipment tuned and ready to hit our park roads beginning April 15. All we need is a little cooperation from Mother Nature, which means reasonably dry roads and a dry forecast for 4 or 5 days to allow the freshly-graded surfaces to become hard packed so they can shed water instead of becoming an even muddier mess.

We appreciate your patience.  And, if you have an extra minute or two to think sunny, warm thoughts, we’d appreciate that, too.
