Haworth Park and American Heroes Park Closed to the Public, Due to Rising Missouri River Levels, Starting at Noon on Monday, June 24, 2024

The City of Bellevue Police and Fire Department’s along with the Public Works Department have announced that American Heroes Park and the Haworth Park Campground and Public Boat Docks have been closed to the public as of Noon today, Monday, June 24th. These closures are due to the rising waters of the Missouri River and the forecast for those flood waters to rise even further this week.

Access to the Haworth Park Baseball and Softball fields will still be allowed and games will still be played as scheduled until further notice since the fields sit on the levee protected side of Haworth Park. Access to the campground, boat docks and trails along the river will not be allowed. In addition, the City of Bellevue and the Papio-Missouri River NRD are in the process of closing the Bellevue Loop Trail to all traffic. This closure will be in place by the end of the day.

The City of Bellevue has opened their Emergency Operations Center (EOC) as of this morning, June 24, 2024, to further monitor the situation and the Bellevue Police and Fire Departments have notified anyone who may be in the path of these projected flood waters.  Please stay tuned for further updates as warranted.
