Pedestrians and bicyclists should use an alternate route. City staff will continue to monitor the situation, and may close additional trails and park areas as needed.
Willow Creek Park, 1117 Teg Drive, will be closed beginning Wednesday, May 1, 2019 due to park renovations. The project is expected to be complete by fall 2019. Park users are encouraged to use the adjacent Kiwanis Park during construction.
