Springfield Parks officials say it may be two weeks or so before things are back to normal at Forest Park.
They have had to close one of the main roads from the main entrance because of erosion caused by weather.
Parks Director Pat Sullivan says the road is about 100 years old and was constructed with the technology of the time, which is very much different then it is now.
Right now parks crews are working on a design and a plan for completion.
In the meantime, patrons who usually use the road to enter the park are asked to use the Route Five entrance which is where the Little League field is.
