Wadsworth Falls State Park Remains Closed Due to ‘Significant' Storm Damage

NBC Connecticut

Wadsworth Falls State Park in Middletown has been closed for three days because of storm damage caused by Tropical Storm Elsa.

Officials with the Department of Energy and Environmental Protection said the park was closed at approximately 2:30 p.m. on Friday. The state park still remains closed because of "significant flooding."

The main area of the park still has large areas of ponded water and debris that washed down the river, DEEP officials told NBC Connecticut.

It is unclear when exactly the park will reopen, but DEEP officials say it may take "a little time to clean it up." No additional information was immediately available.
