[ARCHIVED] Young Park Pond Drain Damage

Over the long weekend, the drain on the southwest section of the Young Park pond was damaged. The drain pipe was loosened causing a leak. Staff will work on different options for repair over the next ten (10) days. The pond fencing was taken down and signage was installed in anticipation for a restock on May 29th. Unfortunately, the restock will not take place. As the drain repair occurs, staff will need to lower the water level and refill. The combination of low water levels and fresh water being added at random times would impact the fish. Game and Fish was contacted and will work with staff to instead restock in mid-June.

Citizens are asked to refrain from entering the pond as it is not a designated swimming area.

Anyone with information on who may be responsible for the vandalism is asked to contact police at (575) 526-0795.

For more information, please contact Parks and Recreation at (575) 541-2550.
