Once the water starts to recede, Public Works will inspect the park to determine when the beach can reopen
VANCOUVER – Captain William Clark Regional Park at Cottonwood Beach is closed effective immediately. Excessive rain has caused flooding on the Columbia River. The river has reached the steps of the park’s south trailhead making it unusable for trail users.
Once the water starts to recede, Public Works will inspect the park to determine when the beach can reopen.
Dike Trail and assets to the north of it remain open.
There are many downed trees at beach parks in the forested areas near both Blurock Landing and Captain William Clark Regional Park. Park users are asked not to attempt to go into these areas until crews are able to assess and cleanup.
Residents can also find information on the Public Works Twitter, Facebook and Instagram profiles, and on Nextdoor.
