Chelan Falls Powerhouse Park will close park for the season starting July 30

Posted

CHELAN FALLS – Work to repair shoreline erosion will require closing Chelan Falls Powerhouse Park for about 10 weeks to restore and improve riverbank stability. The closure will start July 30 and run through Oct. 26.

There will be construction equipment in and out of the area, so for the public’s safety Chelan PUD is closing the park. The restoration also requires in-water work that only can be done when fish aren’t using the channel. The late July to October timeframe for the work allows for it to be completed without disruption to migrating salmon.

Park users are encouraged to visit other nearby PUD parks during the closure. They include:

• Chelan Falls Park and Boat Launch
• Beebe Bridge Park and Boat Launch
• Chelan Riverwalk Park and Boat Launch

 This work is necessary to preserve the park shoreline today and for future generations.
