Due to the high water and more rain expected today, the following trails located close to Beaver Creek are closed.
Under the Merle Hay bridge north of I-80/35
Beaver Creek Natural Resource Area near the creek through the timber
Bridge between Foxboro and Lew Clarkson Park
NW 62nd Avenue clover leaf's and Augustine Trail
The trails are closing out of an abundant caution. The upper Beaver Creek watershed near Perry saw 4 inches of rain on Friday and forecast calls for more on Saturday. This will eventually flow downstream into Beaver Creek in Johnston.
Johnston Parks will reevaluate Monday morning and reopen if they are able. The safety of our residents and visitors to Johnson is our top priority.
