CHULA VISTA, Calif. (KGTV) - Two Chula Vista parks closed Thursday due to the threat of falling trees and saturated ground amid a cold winter storm.

The City of Chula Vista tweeted the closures about 3 p.m. Thursday.

Hilltop Park, 780 Hilltop Drive, and Eucalyptus Park, 436 C Street, are located between I-5 and I-805 in the western half of the city. They will be shut down until crews can remove the trees, city officials said.

The ground "is too saturated to access" the trees, according to the City of Chula Vista.

All sports fields at both parks were also closed.
