The City of Twin Falls Parks and Recreation Department will be installing new docks at Dierkes Lake Park beginning Monday, July 29 through Friday, Aug. 2. Dierkes Lake will remain open for swimming, but park visitors are asked to avoid the docks and work area during installation.
The new docks will replace existing docks at the public swim area, which are deteriorating and beginning to lose buoyancy. Installation of the new docks is expected to be completed by Friday, Aug. 2.
Docks, trails, restrooms, and other equipment, as well as park maintenance and life guards, are paid for through vehicle fee collections that are charged from March through September. Park visitors are encouraged to report any defacing or damage to park facilities to the Twin Falls Parks and Recreation Department at 208-736-2265.
