Urbana Park District is asking people to stop riding their motorized bikes and four wheelers through Weaver Park and its natural areas.
“It is illegal to ride ATVs and motorcycles through our parks,” said Derek Liebert, Superintendent of Planning and Operations.
Weaver Park is a natural area where people can walk trails and observe and enjoy wildlife. The ATVs are creating ruts and destroying the trails.
“This also disturbs the wildlife and ruins the park for others,” Liebert added.
If anyone sees people riding ATVs or motorcycles through Weaver Park, please call Urbana Police.
“We need the public’s help in stopping riders from destroying Weaver Park,” Liebert concluded.
