Millard Park Path Detour

April 15, 2021

Portions of the bluff path at Millard Park, as well as the benches directly along the bluff, are temporarily blocked off due to erosion on the bluff and possible unstable conditions at the top of the bluff.  Please follow detour signs for available paths through the park.

Bluff Management:

Bluffs are naturally an ecosystem of disturbance. Once made unstable through failure at the toe or slippage on the slope, bluff disturbance tends to continue until the area reaches its “angle of repose” or relative stability. This may appear as a small surficial slump on the bluff or full toe to crest slip failures.

Current Efforts:

The District is working with an engineering and geotechnical firm to evaluate the trajectory of this natural process to determine recommended management for public safety and protection of resources. During the evaluation, because the stability of the bluff is unknown, the path is closed.
