All three parks are located along County Road 1, which will be fully reconstructed with new sewer and water upgrades, sidewalks, trail, lighting and riverbank restorations between Sartell Street to 12th Street North.

Staff says by closing the parks, it will increase resident safety in the area, provide space for material storage and allow for the park improvements to be made.

If approved, the closures at Watab and Linear Parks will begin next Monday and run through November 30th. Veterans Park is expected to be closed June 1st through November 30th.
