Valentine Game and Parks Maintenance Office to Close

LINCOLN – The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission has opted not to renew its lease for the Valentine Maintenance office.

The office, located at 420 E. 1st St. in Valentine, will close immediately. Game and Parks plans to move the office to Merritt Reservoir State Recreation Area southwest of Valentine. Parks Division offices will be temporarily moved to the Valentine Fish Hatchery.

Personnel from the Valentine Maintenance office are responsible for operation and maintenance of Game and Parks facilities at Merritt Reservoir and the Cowboy Trail from Ainsworth to Crookston. A relocation of the office would allow the agency to streamline its operations and services at Merritt, which will include campground improvements. Parks maintenance staff can be contacted at 402-376-5908.
