Parts of Polson Park closed due to flooding, despite lower creek levels

Polson Park still a swamp

Various parts of Polson Park are still flooded despite the recent heat.

A large part of the park is still a swamp and is closed after flooding earlier this spring and summer. 

Bylaw officers in the park tell Castanet the park has been in this state since the creek spilled over in late June, but current Vernon Creek levels have receded somewhat.

Sections of the park remain closed off with blue and red fencing between the playground and Japanese gardens. 

There's also a notice posted saying the section with the playground is closed until further notice. 

The City of Vernon closed sections of Polson Park already this summer due to ongoing water issues.

To stay up to date on the flooding situation, you can visit the City of Vernon's website.
