flood closures!

After hanging around 20 FT, the Mississippi River is expected to recede quickly beginning Saturday, 7/13 lowering to 19.2 FT by Sunday, 7/14 and 17.5 FT by Wednesday, 7/17.
The following park areas are closed or have very limited access; based on forecast, access will reopen towards the end of July, dependent on how quickly water recedes and cleaning can commence:
⚠️ The River’s Edge will be closed beginning July 4. The facility will be closed until river levels fall below 19 FT and the parking lot and roads can be cleaned. Anticipated reopening sometime late in the week of 7/15-7/19. Will update with specific reopening date once that is determined.
⛔️ Credit Island Nature Preserve and Park is closed due to water coverage of causeway
⛔️ Centennial Spray Park is closed due to limited safe access to spray area
⚠️ Riverfront Recreation Trail is closed in multiple areas due to water coverage from Credit Island through River Heritage Park
⚠️ Centennial and LeClaire Parks are at various levels of coverage
