Gray’s Lake is closing Monday morning to repair damage caused by recent flooding.

Des Moines Parks and Recreation Marketing Supervisor Jen Fletcher said closing the park will allow crews to finish resurfacing the Kruidenier Trail, which was originally scheduled for late fall.

“Unfortunately, our team has become very adept at dealing with flooding. We know what to do when to do it and so we just work with what we’ve got. When you are in a city with two rivers and nature is unpredictable. You just roll with what you’re dealt,” Fletcher said.

Fletcher said closing the 1.9-mile trail now, will allow people to use it all summer long.
