West Cherry Creek Reservoir boat launch to reopen

A boat launch at Cherry Creek Reservoir will open before Memorial Day weekend, state officials announced Thursday.

The west boat ramp will be open before the weekend, Colorado Parks and Wildlife officials said in a Twitter post. The reservoir’s east boat ramp remains closed, officials said.

Opening the ramp required debris removal and cleanup that developed after the recent storm in early May.

The six inches of rain that fell on the park raised the level of the reservoir by 10 feet, causing the closure of the two boat ramps, the swimming beach and some other areas of the park, and washed away some park roads.
