flood water thomas parkBoyson Trail and Thomas Park are both closed due to the recent rain, melting snow and subsequent flooding of Indian Creek.

The Boyson Trail system from Boyson Rd to Hwy 100, Legion Park and Thomas Park are closed to the public. Access to Thomas Park will be limited to City staff only, until further notice. The public is reminded to observe and obey signage at the entrances of parks and trails. 

Residents are also reminded to avoid area creeks, watersheds and areas of standing water.

“We are keeping a close eye on the rising water and know there is the potential for more rain this afternoon,” said Marion Fire Marshal Wade Markley. “The best course of action is to avoid entering any flood-prone areas or flash flood zones. It takes very little water to sweep you off your feet or move a vehicle. Turn around; don’t drown.” 

Questions can be directed to the Marion Parks and Recreation Department at (319) 447-3580 or Marion Fire Department at (319) 377-8237.
