FLAGLER COUNTY, Fla. – Several Flagler County parks remain partially or completely closed because of flooding and damage caused by Hurricane Irma and other heavy rain events.

“We know it is inconvenient for our residents and visitors but we have to make certain that conditions are safe,” said General Services Director Heidi Petito. “The good news is that the bulk of our parks are open and fully operational.”

Three parks are completely closed because of floodwaters: Princess Place Preserve, Bull Creek Campground, and Haw Creek Preserve – Russell Landing.

River to Sea Preserve, Shell Bluff Park, and Varn Park are partially closed. 

Only the east, beachside portion, of River to Sea Preserve is open. Everything west of State Road A1A is closed.

The southern portion of Varn Park, which includes the ADA walkover, is closed. The northern side of the park is open.

The boat ramp at Shell Bluff Park is closed, but the remainder of the park is open.
