Whitewater State Park reopening June 7 (06/04/2008)
teers, staff and dignitaries in celebrating the Grand Reopening of Whitewater State Park on Saturday June 7. Several activities (listed below) are scheduledthroughout the day with the actual Grand Opening Ceremony at 1pm.

Cake, coffee and lemonade will be provided starting at noon at the visitor center. Park permits are not required.

Whitewater State Park was closed from August 19, 2007, the date of the historic flood, until March 1, 2008. Since then, the phased reopening has continued as repairs continue on damaged infrastructure. Most of the park's recreational opportunities have been restored, though work will continue on certain roads and bridges into 2009.

Everyone that knows and loves Whitewater State Park has felt a need to celebrate the comeback of this very special place. Please join us in this Grand Reopening
