Park workers this morning discovered that the surface of the commercial bus parking lot was softening and identified an underground leak.
The park remained open today until 3 p.m. for personal cars, taxis, and pedestrians. Sightseeing buses were turned away. TheBus dropped passengers off at the top of the park along
The entire park had to be closed at 3 p.m. in order to shut off the park’s water supply for repairs, which affects the bathrooms. Parks and Recreation crews anticipate completing repairs tonight and reopening the park at 6 a.m. tomorrow. The commercial bus parking lot will remain closed until 11 a.m. tomorrow.
Normally, the park closes at 6 p.m. this time of year (7 p.m. during the summer). The leak is only affecting the bus parking lot and not the nature preserve below.
