Rogers Parks and Recreation to Open More Sections of Lake Atalanta Park


LAKE ATALANTA UPDATE: The Rogers Parks & Recreation Department will be reopening another section of Lake Atalanta Park. On Friday, May 25th, at 12:00 PM, sections North of Walnut Street will be open. This includes the hard-surface trail around the Lake and all soft surface trails, green spaces, and the playground. 

Areas in red on the map below are still closed for the time being. Fencing has been installed around the closed areas and access to the playground will be marked. 

"Our department has been hard at work to reopen this northern section of the park. Everyone at the City knows how important Lake Atalanta is to the community, and we made it a priority to get the majority of the park open as quickly as possible." - Parks and Recreation Director, Jim White. 

Several parking spots have been closed from the flood damage and parking is limited. Guests are encouraged to park at the Plesant Ridge Trailhead or the Railyard Bike Park. 

Future closures of the park will be needed to complete repairs in the coming months. City staff is asking everyone to be patient as they work to complete repairs.
