NEW HANOVER COUNTY, NC (WECT) - Parks are beginning to re-open in New Hanover County after Hurricane Irene's arrival last weekend, although not all of them are ready to go.
Parkwood, Kings Grant, Cape Fear Optimist are not going to open up on Tuesday with the rest of the county parks. Snows Cut is expected to open Wednesday or Thursday.
Some are going to be closed longer than those. Summer Rest Trail at Wrightsville Beach, Blue Clay Bike Park, the frisbee golf course at Castle Hayne and Blair baseball field restrooms are closed until further notice due to tree damage and debris.
Athletic fields should re-open Tuesday as well, with the exception of the Ogden baseball fields, Eaton Elementary soccer fields, Five Acre fields, Pop Warner football fields, Castle Hayne soccer fields and Cape Fear Optimist baseball fields.
