ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS - A group of workers is still trying to restore a park devastated by Sandy nearly 10 months ago.

The hiking trails at the 100-year-old Palisades Park are still closed after Hudson River flooding killed trees and plant life.

The 11 workers have spent the last few months widening the trails and removing trees from the water.

The park is home to 12 miles of shoreline and hiking trails. Nearly 90 percent of it was badly affected by the storm, according to Christina Fehre with the Palisades Interstate Park Commission.

Fehre says one of the biggest issues remaining is that of erosion along the Hudson. Sandy washed away sand and the rock wall, so workers have been clearing debris and repositioning rocks to make the trails safer.

Officials estimate it will take about five years to rebuild what Sandy destroyed in just a few hours. But they say they are committed to seeing the job through.

The commission is looking for volunteers to help with the cleanup effort. Interested groups should contact the Palisades Interstate Park Commission.
