Bear Overlook parking lot

Dear All,

Many of you have probably noticed that the Bear Overlook parking lot on the west side of the reservoir has been closed lately.  They have been busy working on drainage improvements, updating the parking lot, and installing an automatic gate and fee collection system.  This will remain closed until Thursday, April 15th for work that they are currently doing, including trail construction.  A flyer for this closure is attached.

I have also included a couple of pictures from Brittany Davis Swinford, Regional Manager, Eagle Creek Park, showing the work that has been done on the construction of the ADA Loop Trail on the west side which is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2021.  This is going to be a terrific addition to that area.

Just a reminder that the park gates are opening at 7:00 a.m. and closing at 8:30 p.m.  In May the closing time will be moving to 9:00 p.m.

If you get a chance, get out and visit the park.  The wildflowers are great right now, the trees are coming out, and it is just a beautiful place to be.
