Tuesday morning, Wellington residents received quite a shock when they saw the flooding from Slate Creek had closed Woods Park. With the rainfall having stopped, the creek level is slowly going back down, but it may be some time before it re-opens. As to when that might be, City Manager Shane Shields said he "cannot truly give an estimate. Obviously when the water recedes, but then we have to check the roadway conditions before access is reopened. There have been times over the years past that some grading to the road was necessary."
