Road Closure in Jester Park through Mid-June

Monday, May 15, 2017

Due to inclement weather over the past few weeks, interior road work at Jester Park has fallen behind schedule and is now anticipated to open mid-June. The section closed spans between the Hickory Ridge trailhead just past the Youth Campground to the south edge of Discovery Pond.

If you are planning to visit Jester Park before mid-June, please read the following for access information:

Park users that want to access the following amenities should enter the park through the back (north side) entrance. Coming in from the south on NW 121st St., turn left onto NW 118th Ave. and follow the curve as it turns into NW 128th St. At the end of this road you will find the back entrance to Jester Park.
