Parks and Recreation Flood Recovery Map Daily Update - September 17


 Due to extreme flooding in the Manhattan area, Manhattan Parks and Recreation has conducted site assessments of all parks and trails in our area.

As of 3 p.m. September 18, the following areas will remain CLOSED:

  • Portions of soft-surfaced trails at Anneberg Park 
  • Playground areas of Anneberg Park


  • All sports fields are open (Twin Oaks, Anneberg, Cico, and Griffith) 
  • All of Linear Trail 
  • All soft surface trails (with the exception of Anneberg Trail in the southwest corner) 
    • We still ask that you use caution on all soft surface areas to not rut trails and use with caution



Limited parking is available at Anneberg. Clean up efforts are still occurring. Parking is limited to paved parking areas and the North section of the gravel parking lot that has been resurfaced. We encourage carpooling or to be dropped off to this area. Parking will be significantly impacted for several weeks.  

Attached are maps of all of the City of Manhattan Parks areas as well as the areas impacted at Anneberg Park. We will continue to make updates daily on the progress of recovery efforts at 3 p.m. each week day. 



  • All playground areas will remain closed
  • Parking is still limited 
  • Shelters are open and able to reserve 
  • All water fountains are operational

We also ask as a reminder to please do not walk or bike on wet trails until there has been enough time for them to dry out. The pedestrian traffic can cause ruts and damage to the trails and cause permanent damage.

Thank you to the community as we continue to make improvements each day.
