SEASHORE'S NORTH DISTRICT PARKING AREA 5 TO REOPEN ON WEEKENDS BEGINNING JUNE 25, 2005.Canaveral National Seashore announced today that the North District Apollo parking area number 5 will re-open on a weekend basis beginning June 25, 2005.
Park Superintendent Carol Clark said, "the area 5 boardwalk replacement has progressed to a point where it may be re-opened to our visitors during weekend hours". The area closed April 18th for an estimated period of approximately 8 weeks in order to ensure visitor safety and protect fragile resources during the rebuilding process.
Superintendent Clark further stated that "inclement weather has delayed the anticipated completion date, so we are taking this step to provide full access to the entire parking area during peak visitation periods when maintenance crews are not actively working on the project."
Seashore staff believe the improvements to the lot 5 area will be well received and make the temporary inconvenience worth the wait. Boardwalks are routinely replaced on a cyclic basis in order to counter the effects of weather, age, and storm damage such as last year's unprecedented hurricane season.
The National Park Service cares for the special places saved by the American people so that all may experience our heritage.
