More park features around Chambers Bay will close after Memorial Day

People who use the Grandview Trail in University Place have just a few more days to enjoy the popular path before it closes for a month.

The trail will be closed to the public starting Tuesday so crews can put the finishing touches on the Chambers Bay golf course in advance of next month’s U.S. Open.

Also closed beginning Tuesday will be the East Slope Trail, Playground by the Sound and the golf course itself.

The actions are part of a series of closures at Chambers Creek Regional Park for the U.S. Open, which runs June 18-21 at Chambers Bay.

Closed earlier this year were Soundview Trail, the off-leash dog park, Central Meadow, North Meadow and other park features.

The Chambers Bay Grill and pro shop will be closed starting June 11. The county’s Environmental Services Building and surrounding ballfields will close starting June 10.

Similarly, public access will gradually reopen when the golf tournament ends.

Grandview Trail, East Slope Trail, Playground by the Sound and the golf course will reopen to the public June 26. Other park features will reopen throughout the summer with the exception of the Central Meadow, which will be off limits until spring 2016.
