Langdale Park is back open to drive in, since Monday.
Join us at Langdale Park Boat Ramp on
Saturday, Friday, October 20, 2023, for a boating cleanup.
Don’t worry: if you don’t have a boat or don’t want to use one, you can clean up on land.
You may recall that back on September 28th I thought I’d collect a water quality sample at Langdale Park, and I found downed trees all along the entrance road.
A week later, I checked again, and all that Hurricane Idalia debris was still there.
So I called Lowndes County Public Works. They agreed they did maintain Hyta Mederer Road, and they would open a work order. They asked if it was urgent, or would Monday do? I said Monday would be fine.
And on Monday they got all the impediments off the road. Gretchen Quarterman tood these pictures Tuesday. She got there in her low-slung Prius C.
