Wilderness Park Trail Closures Begin May 28

Published on May 24, 2024

The Parks and Recreation Department today announced that two Wilderness Park trails will close beginning May 28 for bridge and trail work. The Red and Green All User Trails between mile markers 50 and 51 will be closed until fall.

The project will retrofit a former railroad bridge over Salt Creek and extend the Rock Island Trail into Wilderness Park. The work area will be marked with orange construction fence. Park visitors are asked to avoid the bridge and work areas.

This project is funded by a Land and Water Conservation Fund grant and with support from partners including the Great Plains Trail Network, the Lower Platte South Natural Resources District, and with proceeds from the Run for the Bridges event.
