Spillway Boat Launch reopens

HAHNVILLE – The Department of Parks and Recreation prepared the area surrounding the Lower Guide Levee side of the Spillway for recreational use and re-opened the boat launch on May 22.

Residents are urged to use extreme caution, as some areas remain barricaded off due to damage caused by the opening of the Spillway Flood Control structure.

Wetland Watchers Park is now re-opened; however, in accordance with the governor’s recent proclamation, the playground equipment remains closed.
