Several parks in Petersburg are seeing changes this month.

Borough workers have removed stairs from Eagle’s Roost Park that provided access to the beach along North Nordic Drive. Those wooden stairs were about 25 years old and were starting to fail. The Parks and Recreation Department hopes to replace them at some point in the future.

The borough is also redoing a culvert and access road to shelter number one at Sandy Beach Park. That will mean several new parking spots and a wider road in to that end of the park. Joe Viechnicki spoke with Parks and Recreation director Stephanie Payne and started off asking about the stairs at Eagle’s Roost.

Restrooms at the park close in October for the colder months, typically reopening in May.
