Sly Park Recreation Area Remains Closed: Recreation Staff Recruited to Assist Hydro Division
Crews Are Working Together to Help Keep Water System Flowing
Heavy snow coupled with cold temperatures in the low teens mean downed trees and ice on the canals, ditches and upper water systems. Recreation staff has been asked to assist our hydro operations crews thus preventing additional snow removal and clearing at the park.
The park will continue to be closed until further notice.
Thank you for your patience!
