The McLeod County Park Commission is not allowing the public to enter any of the six county parks from today (Nov 6) through November 16.
Officials say the reason is for public safety and to protect the wildlife during hunting season.
The parks affected are:
Buffalo Creek Park (Glencoe), Swan Lake Park (Silver Lake), William May Park (Winsted), Stahl’s Lake Park (Hutchinson), Lake Marion Regional Park (Brownton), and Piepenburg Regional Park (Hutchinson).
Officials are also reminding the public that there is no hunting allowed on County park property.
