The City of Yuma has closed the equestrian trail near West Wetlands Park from just east of the park’s entrance at 12th Avenue and Water Street due to trail damage caused by an irrigation break.
The trail is open at Gateway Park, with access to the Yuma East Wetlands. However, trail access between Gateway and the West Wetlands is blocked off.
Yuma parks maintenance staff members discovered the breakage and discovered the irrigation flow caused considerable erosion to the trail. Staff members then installed gates surrounding the damaged area.
Parks and Recreation estimates the trail closure could last more than two weeks.
