(VICTORIA, TEXAS) The Victoria Parks and Recreation Department is pleased to announce that most of Riverside Park from McCright Drive to Red River Street is scheduled to reopen at 6 am Saturday, December 16, 2017. Residents will be able to drive through most of the park after the barricades are removed.

The popular Nature Trail will reopen at that time as will most of the disk golf holes on the McCright Drive loop behind Rosebud Stadium.

The following parts of Riverside Park are already open: The Children’s Park, the Special Events area, the Texas Zoo, the Boat Ramp and the area around the Pump House Restaurant.

A few parts of the park will be closed until further repairs are done: the Rose Garden, Grover’s Bend, Fox’s Bend, Riverside Pavilion and some parking near the Duck Pond. Riverside Golf Course also remains closed but will reopen on January 6, 2018.

The public’s patience and understanding are greatly appreciated as the Parks and Recreation Department continues to work to reopen all of Riverside Park.

For more information, please contact Parks and Recreation at 485-3200.
