The City of Brandon’s Community Services Department is pleased to inform the public that after an extended closure through the spring and summer, Queen Elizabeth Park (accessed from the intersection of 26th Street & McDonald Avenue) has officially re-opened to the public today.
The park was initially closed in early April due to rising floodwaters in the area, at which time a large pipe was laid across the access road to the park to allow for continued operations at the nearby Water Treatment Plant amidst high water levels. Following the spring flood response, access to the park remained blocked off until this pipe could be buried underground. That permanent work has been completed this week, along with extensive removal of flood-impacted trees and debris.
The City of Brandon thanks the public for its patience during this time of flood recovery and encourages park-goers to freely return to the area.
