Destruction from March Flooding was Unique but Gray’s Lake May Open Soon
DES MOINES, Iowa -- Trail closures due to flooding at Gray`s Lake are certainly not new. Jen Fletcher, Des Moines Parks and Recreation Marketing Supervisor agreed and said, "Unfortunately our team has become accustomed to flooding. In fact, we are kind of good at it." However, the destruction from a mid-march flood was unusual. "This has been probably some of the worst damage Gray's Lake has seen in ten or fifteen years. It's going to be interesting the next few days as our team really gets in there, gets things cleaned up and we will see what we have to deal with," Fletcher said.
