Due to exceptional flooding, Beckley Creek and Pope Lick Parks have been closed in their entirety. This includes the PNC Achievement Center, Gheens Foundation Lodge, and all facilities. Barriers have been placed at all park entrances and visitors are instructed to stay out of The Parklands.
The parks will remain closed until sunrise tomorrow. At that time, staff will evaluate conditions and begin re-opening the park as water levels recede and clean up activities are completed.
