Platte River SP observation tower to close temporarily

LINCOLN, Neb. – Platte River State Park’s Lincoln Journal Star Observation Tower will close temporarily to the public so it can be painted.

Located near Walter Scott Jr. Lodge, the tower will be closed Sept. 17 to Nov. 1. Hiking near the tower is permissible, but the area below the tower will be closed to traffic. The Daugherty Tower, located near Mallet Lodge, will remain open, and dining at Walter Scott Jr. Lodge will continue through the maintenance.

The observation tower at Eugene T. Mahoney State Park also is currently closed due to construction of a new group facility.

For more information, contact the park office at 402-234-2217, and stay tuned to OutdoorNebraska.org for updates.
