The community initiative to beautify and protect Oroville parks moved a small step forward today.

The community group Parkwatch as well as the volunteers in police services of Oroville, came together to patrol two and a half miles of River Bend Park going up to Bed Rock Park.

They found illegal camps, litter, environmental destruction, and a used syringe.

The turnout for today's patrol was less than expected and the director for Feather River Recreation Park district, Kent Fowler, hopes with time more community members will step in.

Kent Fowler says, “I’m hoping to do this at least 3 days a week eventually well have seven days a week with multiple teared patrols"

More than 40 community members showed interest in attending today's patrol on Facebook, but only four people actually showed up.

If you would like to be a part of the project, you can download the Park Watch Report app or contact the Feather River Park District.
