Sediment and small rocks have built up at downtown’s whitewater park, altering the original dimension of park pools and prompting a clean-up effort.
Work starts Monday morning and goes through Friday for three to six weeks. Wingfield Park will be partially or fully closed during construction.
“The Truckee River channels in and around Wingfield Park will be affected, and Wingfield Park itself will be partly or fully closed during work hours,” said city staff in a media statement. “During non-work hours some equipment/materials may remain on site, though construction vehicles may be removed each day.”
The project is also expected to improve flows to Virginia Lake and the Cochrane Ditch.
