WATERLOO, Iowa – Heavy rains from this weekend have caused flooding of the Cedar River; therefore, George Wyth State Park will be closing Sunday at 6:00 pm.

The Cedar River is expected to crest on Wednesday and the main roads in the park are expected to be covered by water. Trails and other areas of the park may also be impacted by the flooding within the park.

Park officials hope to have the area back up open for public use by next weekend.
