PENDER COUNTY – Pender County’s Hampstead Kiwanis Park and Pender Memorial Park will close on Thursday to all group activities, due to Hurricane Michael.
“We will evaluate the parks and determine if the parks should open on Friday,” said Doug Shipley, Pender County Parks and Recreation director. “If the storm is severe and causes damage, we may need to close the parks throughout the weekend.”
The Holly Shelter Shooting Range will be closed on Thursday, Oct. 11.
Shipley said depending on the impact of the storm, a decision will be made regarding re-opening the facility for Friday and the weekend.
Youth sports and various park activities should monitor the Pender County website, www.pendercountync.gov or the parks and rec Facebook pages for updates.
