I checked with Lane County parks, Amber Fossen, and all the parks are open this next week.
So I suggest we go to Perkins Point on Wednesday, May 23rd, 10-4pm, and to Richardson, the largest park on Fern Ridge Lake on Friday May 25th.
The web site is : http://www.co.lane.or.us/parks/richard.htm for Richardson Park and
http://www.co.lane.or.us/Parks/perkins.htm for Perkins Penisula Park
Directions to Perkins Penisula: West on 11th street past Beltline and Greenhill Road. On the right about 9 miles from downtown (before Veneta).
Directions to Richardson: North on 99, left on Clear Lake Road. Stay on Clear Lake Road till right before Territorial Road.
Richardson Park is on the left. Totals miles from downtown is about 15miles. Let's meet at the picknic area closest to the boat docks.
Both parks have a parking fee of $3...so car pool if you can.
Amber also said there will be a public hearing about closing the parks next Wednesday, May 23, at 1:30pm at Harris Hall in the old court house.
This is during our paintout May 23rd and May 25th...10-4pm bummer.
All four Fern Ridge Parks are on the list of potential park closings.
See you next week on the Lake,
