Aging recreation facilities to close

Posted: Updated:

Coronado National Forest officials have announced that some aging facilities will be removed from recreation sites due to lack of use and safety concerns. Scheduled to be removed are the restroom and picnic sites at Sykes Knob Picnic Area, the restroom at the Mt. Bigelow Electronic Site, seven picnic sites in the Cactus Picnic Area, and the picnic sites at the Sabino Canyon Group site.

Public safety was also a major factor in the decision, as many facilities are aging and may no longer be safe to use.
