A popular park in the metro is open again.

Des Moines Parks and Rec opened up the gates to Gray’s Lake Park at noon on Monday.  It was closed three weeks ago because of flooding from the Raccoon River.

There is still no beach access at this time, and watercraft rentals are not available until water testing shows the lake is safe for normal activities.

The concession stand at the lake also opened at noon.
