Firewood, wood chips available for citizens
The Rockford Park District invites citizens to help themselves to wood chips and firewood at several park locations.
The wood is in manageable pieces to take and load in vehicles, but people are not permitted to use chain saws, log splitters or other power equipment in the park, warned Curt Johnson, manager, Park Services.
We have a huge wood chip pile in the parking lot at Sinnissippi Park near the Park Police stone shelter, and theres some firewood for the taking there and at the second parking lot across from the Sinnissippi Golf Course, added Johnson.
The firewood may need to dry or season for a year before burning in the fireplace.
There is also lots of firewood at Ingersoll Park, located near the stone shelter south of the Ingersoll Golf Course on Daisyfield Road. People are not to take any wood from Ingersoll Golf Course, which is still in the process of being cleared of trees and brush, and may reopen to golf play next week.
