CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (KCRG) Sokol Park in Cedar Rapids is closing to make way for permanent flood protection.

The roughly three-acre park is located along 16th Avenue Southwest, in Czech Village. Construction is happening now for a new levee in that area.

City officials said a park with the same name will re-open at a new location after construction is over.
