Pedestrian bridge closed due to rising water levels

Posted on: April 10, 2017

With the river levels rising, the Town of Smiths Falls has decided to close off access to Turtle Island.  The south pedestrian bridge (Spillway to Duck Island on the main channel of the river) remains closed. Barriers are in place.

Parks Canada is opening dams upstream in an effort to control flooding.  The Town will provide updates when the water levels change.

Ensure that children stay away from cold, fast flowing water.
