Pending Speelyai Closure

Posted on 29th August 2014 at 09:03

If you and your family want to use the popular Speelyai Bay Day Use Park on Lake Merwin, you had better do it this weekend, as PacifiCorp is preparing to close the facility for repairs. The utility says that the park will close on Tuesday, the 2nd, and should be closed until at least mid-December as the facility is renovated and enhanced. Contractors are being brought in to replaced the park’s septic system, to make parking lot improvements, upgrade the picnic area and to install additional ADA access. Boat launching will still be available at the nearby Cresap Bay Park; day use facilities are also available at Cresap Bay and at Merwin Park. PacifiCorp officials say that they wanted to have the facility open for the popular Labor Day weekend, but they also posted signs and will be distributing notices about the pending closure.
