Riverside Park reopens today
Flooding has kept the park closed for most of the summer. Damage included flooding of picnic pavilions, storage buildings, the baseball field, bike trail, boat landing, river walls and lawn, according to a press release.
City workers and volunteers have cleared debris and cleaned streets, trails, buildings, boat launch, benches, and picnic tables. The playground sand was removed and will be replaced in the near future, the city promised.
Lawn repairs will begin after wet areas have dried.
