OKLAHOMA CITY – After announcing that the Bricktown Landing will not open its gates to visitors, organizers say special arrangements are being made for the Oklahoma Regatta Festival this week.

City leaders say they are working with officials from Union Pacific to allow pedestrians to have temporary access to the landing during the festival, which began Wednesday.

Bricktown Landing is a trail, sidewalk and river channel that allows people to cross between Bricktown and the Boathouse District.

An opening ceremony was postponed Tuesday after Union Pacific said they had not inspected the area under the railroad bridge.

Visitors can get to the landing from the Chesapeake Boathouse and Regatta Park Landing or near the Land Run Monument in Bricktown.
