The 4th of July celebration at the Park at River Walk was not without collateral damage. 

City workers were out in full force Thursday to clean up trash and even feces that was left behind.

City Recreation and Parks director Dianne Hoover said the trash was really bad Thursday, hours after the annual fireworks show at the park. 

Not only did trash need to be cleaned up, but there was even feces left on restroom walls. That feces has since been cleaned up. 

Crews were still on scene as of Thursday afternoon continuing to clean up the park off Stockdale Highway.
