The bridge at Bessie Benner Metzenbaum Park will be closed for repairs in May for an unknown period, weather dependent; as soon as it is reopened, this notice will be removed and an update will be posted to our social media sites. The boardwalk that connects the park to the school will also be closed during construction. Signs will be posted.


The horse bypass at Holbrook Hollows is closed for the season. During this time, riders should instead utilize the boardwalk to cross the stream at this location. Signs will be posted.
