Clay County residents will soon need to find an alternate route to enter Forest Park.
Brazil Park Board officials say three sections of park roads will be closed from Tuesday-Thursday, Oct. 18-20 for repaving, but the majority of park recreation areas will still be accessible to the public.
According to Park Board member Linda Messmer, the park entrance off Pinckley Street will remain open.
Patrons will still have access to the golf course, walking track, playground and softball fields.
However, the following routes will be closed:
* Nabuca Drive to State Road 59 to the comfort station,
* Bonnie Miller Drive from the stop signs by the cabins to Nabuca Drive, and
* Jesse Pitts Drive from Nabuca Drive to the walking track.
Board members and park personnel are requesting no traffic on the three road sections, including no bicycle, vehicle, golf cart or pedestrian traffic.
In addition, park patrons will not have access to Roy Brand Stadium.
Messmer said the public should have access to the roads again Friday, Oct. 21, if all goes as planned.
The board will next meet Monday, Oct. 17, at 6 p.m.
