Another Rochester Area Park Closed Due to Flooding
Rain rain go away, come again another day. It has been an abnormally wet summer, and sadly it's affecting more than just our mood. Oxbow has been closed several times because of flooding, and now another Olmsted County Park has been forced to do the same. This time, Chester Woods Park.
They posted the bad news to their Facebook page yesterday:
According to the post, their docks are under water. The beach AND trails are closed until further notice. They said you can still rent canoes and kayaks, but they'll have to be carried down to the large boat launch area due to a dock blocking the normal launch area.
Fortunately, according to the Weather Channel, we should get a break from the rain for a few days. Sunshine and mild temps are expected until Friday.
