On October 28, 2020, the Palmer Horse Barn at Pink Creek Park caught on fire. Six fire companies worked to contain the fire, however, the barn was a total loss. Fortunately, there were no injuries and we are very grateful to the First Responders who battled this blaze.. The cause of the fire is an undetermined accident.
The park remained closed for several weeks for insurance and safety reasons. Reopened on December 4, the park is again available for public use. The site of the fire has been fenced off for the protection of visitors.
