Some of Fort Snelling State Park has reopened three weeks after floodwaters forced officials to close the park to visitors.
The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources says the main park road, park office and visitor center are now open. The Minnehaha Trail, Snelling Lake Trail and Memorial Chapel are also open.
DNR officials said some areas of the park were damaged by the floodwaters, so some areas will remain closed for now. They include Pike Island, Picnic Island, Jens Casperson boat landing on the Minnesota River and eight miles of the Sibley Trail from Mendota to the Jens Casperson boat landing.
Spring flooding caused several parks and roads to close in the Twin Cities, but dry weather and a slower snowmelt meant most buildings were able to stay dry during the period of high water.
