The Cole Park pier is closed according to a press release from the City Parks and Rec Department.  

Monday afternoon, the City department said they had to perform an emergency closure after an inspection was done on the structure that showed it was in unsafe condition.

The Parks and Rec Director, Jay Ellington, says the pier will go through an assessment process before the reparation process. 

It is not known how long that could take but Ellington says that the City will work on temporary fixes to open the pier up as quickly as possible.

The pier entrance was blocked off.  Ellington advises that everyone adhere to signage until they can make the pier safe for everyone.
