LINCOLN, Neb. – The Beatrice Police Department said two parks are now closed in anticipation of flooding in the area.

BPD posted on Facebook Tuesday Chautauqua and Riverside parks in Beatrice will be closed for the next few days.

The closure is due to concern of the Big Blue River flooding.

The department asks the public to monitor their Facebook page for updates, and not to call 911 or dispatch with river-related questions.
