COLUMBUS, KY (KFVS) -

The U.S. Corps of Engineers will be doing an evaluation after a landslide at a Columbus, Kentucky park.

According to Gil Lawson with the Kentucky Department of Tourism, a recent landslide at Columbus-Belmont Civil War State Park did not damage buildings, but the park has moved a fence back due to the slide.

He said the park is safe and open.

The state park is on top of a hill and used to be an old Civil War fort. It is located along the Mississippi River.
