Three Mile Bend has opened to both two-legged and four-legged animals.

The City of Red Deer opened the park after more than a week of cleanup work after the recent flooding.

Parks superintendent Trevor Poth said there are still some hazards in the park area so residents should use caution and adhere to the barriers and signs in place.

A number of parks have already reopened, including Bower Ponds, Kiwanis Picnic Park, Great West Adventure Park.

Areas that will remain closed are lower Heritage Ranch island and fishing dock, all boat launches within city limits, McKenzie Trails, River Bend perimeter trail and picnic area and a small trail connection behind Sacred Heart Church.

The city will continue to clean up and assess areas of the park system that are closed.

Residents are reminded to stay away from any barricaded areas or sites with flagging tape. These areas are unsafe or crews are operating cleanup equipment.
