Things are looking quite a bit different at Orono Park already, as Active Elk River enhancements are now underway. Please note, the boat launch will open at 3:00 p.m. today (May 28) through the Memorial Day holiday, then will close beginning Tuesday, June 1 for the next two weeks.
This closure includes weekday and weekends, for removal of the existing parking lot and grading of the new lot. This is necessary to ensure proper safety, as this is a very active construction site. The contractor has installed fencing that will allow weekend access of the launch when permitted.
Parking is available for boat trailers and playground/dog park access along Gary Street.
Stay tuned for more updates soon, and be sure to visit ActiveElkRiver.com for details on this, and other projects.
