LONGVIEW, Texas (KLTV) - An oil spill is being cleaned up at a Longview park.

The city of Longview was notified that there had been a spill at a creek that runs through Cargill Long Park.

Workers had dammed the creek with floats and were removing the oil from the creek. The city says the spill or leak happened north of the park and came downstream to the park itself.

The city did not have to close the park trail because of the leak.
