Brandon Police Service Special Release: Rising River Levels
The Brandon Police Service would like to inform the public that due to rising river levels, citizens are reminded to stay away from the Assiniboine River. The City of Brandon has released that public access has been closed to low lying recreational areas including Dinsdale Park and Queen Elizabeth Park with access to the walking bridge at the Riverbank Discovery Centre affected. Please avoid these areas and obey the barricades and signage that are in place. The rising river combined with fast flowing water and ice is a very dangerous area. Citizens who endanger themselves by not obeying the barricades and signage not only put potential risk to themselves but also to Emergency Personal who may have to save them.
