"We've made a lot of improvements, particularly renovating the main building and several adjacent buildings damaged by a 2018 flood," said Upper West Fork Park president, Jim Shields.

The park has survived a contentious conflict over management.

Renovations include new doors, inside and out, new tile, vanities, kitchen cabinets and painting.

"Some of the outside tables and benches that floated down the West Fork have never been found," said Shields.

The main building had about one foot of water.

Attendance at the Saturday night music event has been growing, with live regional bands performing. Music is from 7-10 p.m., with the kitchen open at 4:30 p.m.

Secretary Anita West said bands are booked each Saturday night through the end of the year with some new events scheduled, namely, a couple gun shows, shooting match, and a mud bog.
