A perspective from Oregon’s mid-Willamette Valley

Park closed on a sunny, dry day

Written March 3rd, 2019 by Hasso Hering

The weather turned fine on Saturday, but automobile access to Albany’s Bryant Park remained closed. That didn’t keep people from using the park for disc golf, time on the playground, or just walking around. They just left their cars outside the entrance, and outside the exit too.

River’s rise closes Bryant Park
