Flooding Has Forced Temporary Closure of Oklahoma's Turner Falls Park
That is Turner Falls falling a lot of water you see here.
The flooding at the base of the falls has Turner Falls looking a lot shorter than its usual 77 feet.
The photos were taken by the Davis Police Department, then posted on the Davis Police Department Facebook page, along with saying...
Sorry for the inconvenience of Turner Falls being closed but it's not safe to open. We will open as soon as possible. Thanks for your patience.
Above you are looking at the flooded swimming hole that, come summer, will have a lot of people cooling off beneath Turner Falls.
Go to our Turner Falls Park webpage and you will see photos of what Turner Falls looks like when it is not flooding, including, if I remember right, a photo of my humble self underneath the then trickling falls.
A few years ago we visited Turner Falls in winter. At that point in time Honey Creek was running high with some flooding, but nothing like is currently happening. Go to our Turner Falls Park in Winter webpage and you will see photos of a semi-flooding Honey Creek and Turner Falls falling a lot of water.
