Talking Rock Park reopened to the public Saturday, May 22.
The park has been closed due to damage from flooding. While there is still some damage remaining, city officials say the park is usable. Mayor Randy Banks has meet with contractors to replace some washed out walkway areas with concrete, fencing, two swings, and bathroom stalls.
Banks said these repairs have been held up while the city waited for disaster relief funding. Over the next several weeks the public can expect the park to close briefly a day or two here and there while repairs are performed.
