Division of Parks & Recreation seeks public input on plans
to extend hours on selected White Clay Creek State Park trails
DOVER (Sept. 14, 2015) – DNREC’s Division of Parks & Recreation is seeking public input on a proposed pilot program to extend trail hours on selected trails at White Clay Creek State Park. Made at the request of the White Clay Creek Advisory Council and the Delaware Trail Spinners, the proposed changes would allow for additional trail use in the fall, winter and spring.
An open house on the proposal will be held from 4 to 8 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 16, at White Clay Creek State Park, Judge Morris Estates, 76 Polly Drummond Hill Road, Newark, DE 19711. Multiple information stations will be available for public discussion with park staff.
The proposed pilot program, a questionnaire and important information about the hours and trails under consideration also will be available online beginning Sept. 16, at www.destateparks.com/WhiteClayOpenHouse. For more information, please call the Division of Parks & Recreation at 302-739-9220.
DNREC’s Division of Parks & Recreation maintains and continues to expand the statewide trail system, connecting communities to park lands for recreation and commuting. More than 150 miles of trails from Cape Henlopen State Park in Lewes to Auburn Heights Preserve in Yorklyn, offering a wide range of outdoor activities, are managed by Delaware State Parks.Vol. 45, No. 301
