The Robert S. Keaton Memorial Fishing Dock (South Dock) at Hill Park (1610 Park Ave) has been closed until further notice due to safety concerns.
Temporary tape has been put across the dock until City staff can install a temporary barrier and signage across the dock access point. The North Dock at Hill Park and the fishing dock at the Blackman Lake Boat Launch (1432 Ave A) remain open and available for public use.
City staff have recommended the complete closure of the North Dock at Hill Park to conduct a detailed investigation into the extent of pile rot. Upon completing the investigation, staff will prioritize the removal and replacement of identified old and failed piles or, alternatively, consider the feasibility of replacing the entire dock if deemed essential for ensuring long-term structural integrity.
