As "temporary city" goes up, Chambers Creek Park areas close off
The U.S. Open is the largest sporting event ever to be held in the Pacific Northwest. Over the past several weeks, crews have been setting up tents, building platforms, and constructing camera towers in preparation for the championship.
To accommodate the expanding "temporary city," Pierce County and the USGA are implementing a phased-in approach to preserve public access to the park as long as possible. Portions of the park have already seen a great deal of growth, and on May 26, the following closures will begin:
- Grandview Trail
- Chambers Bay Golf Course
- Playground by the Sound
You can watch this historic event coming together in real-time by visiting the live Chambers Bay webcam at http://www.chambersbaygolf.com/Web-Cam/. As always, you can find the latest information on the U.S. Open-related closures at Chambers Bay by visiting Pierce County's website.
