Riverfront Park remains closed due to flooding damage

East Oregonian - 04-18


The water has mostly receded from Riverfront Park in Hermiston, but the park remains closed due to flooding damage. At least one large tree has fallen over, and the park is covered with a thick layer of silt and piles of debris ranging in size from twigs to logs. The section of the Oxbow Trail that connects the trail to the park has crumbled, and parks manager Jason Barron said other parts of the walking path around the park have been structurally compromised.
