ST. PAUL, Minnesota — St. Paul officials have announced plans to reopen a small part of a city park where a landslide killed two children in 2013.
The city plans to reopen the mile-long Brickyard Trail at Lilydale Regional Park by this summer. School groups would be allowed to use one of the park's four fossil sites in the fall.
But even with $450,000 worth of planned safety enhancements, Minnesota Public Radio News (http://bit.ly/1Et6ufx ) reports much of the park's brickyards, including the site of the landslide, will remain closed indefinitely.
The city plans to add fences to keep people out of dangerous areas.
Nine-year-old Haysem Sani and 10-year-old Mohamed Fofana died and two other children were injured in May 2013. They were part of a fossil-hunting field trip with their St. Louis Park elementary school.
