The City of Bellevue has entered into a Public/Private Partnership with local resident, Roger Winsor, for the sole purpose of establishing and maintaining a campground at Haworth Park. This partnership only entails the land at Haworth Park that had been utilized as a campground prior to the 2019 floods.
Mr. Winsor expects cleanup work to begin in the near future on the campground area with a goal to have it open for the 2021 camping season. During this cleanup process, the campground loop and the old marina area will remain closed to the public. The Bellevue Police Department will continue to monitor these areas for trespassers.
The City of Bellevue would like to remind Bellevue residents and visitors that, this agreement does not affect, the public boat ramps, the baseball/softball fields or any part of American Heroes Park. Additionally, access and parking for the Bellevue Loop Trail, which is the southern extension of the Keystone Trail, will still be available to the public via Payne Drive. All of these areas will continue to be open for public access and the City encourages residents to use these recreational options.
Stay tuned to www.bellevue.net and local media outlets as work progresses on the campground area.
