Formal Garden Area Closes Temporarily at Shore Acres State Park


Oregon State Parks officials have closed the formal garden area within Shore Acres State Park. The formal gardens will remain closed until the end of day December 2nd. The closure is in response to the Governor’s Temporary Freeze Executive Order. The rest of the park remains open. That includes the viewpoint and trails outside the garden area. The annual Shore Acres Holiday Lights event usually scheduled from Thanksgiving to New Year’s and held in the garden was canceled earlier this year because of the ongoing pandemic. Officials said in a release this morning, the Formal Gardens closure could extend past the 2nd if further executive orders are issued. The $5 parking permit for the area remains in effect.
