The City of Sacramento Parks and Recreation Department says it has begun the process to clean up lead contamination at the Mangan Park Gun Range.

Chris Conlin is the department's director. He says there is no threat to anyone living or playing in the area.

"Our major concern initially was, are the playgrounds, are the play areas around the building, the picnic area, the archery field, the soccer field, the pool, and playground that's out there, are they safe? The really good news is they are,"

He says the Sacramento city manager closed the gun range in 2014 because lead levels inside  were approaching unhealthy levels.

Conlin says more testing of the sidewalks adjacent to the range has begun and cleanup efforts and fencing may be adjusted accordingly.

The city worked with Sacramento County and the State of California to create a cleanup plan.

The document was finalized Wednesday.
