Huroc Park in Flat Rock is closed until further notice due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Flat Rock police and the City of Flat Rock  announced the closure on their Facebook pages Thursday.

Authorities said the park currently is not an ideal location for the public to be visiting as communities try to battle COVID-19 through social distancing and staying home.

“The decision comes after many warranted complaints and concerns from citizens for the spread of the virus. With the main entrance to the island and park being a narrow bridge, citizens would find themselves unknowing placing themselves within the governor’s recommended 6 ft social distancing range; thus, placing themselves and others, in possible danger of spreading the COVID-19 virus. It has also been noted, groups of people have been gathering inside the park and the general area,” the post said.

Flat Rock police said those who enter the Huroc Park area or parking lot will be subject to a misdemeanor citation and fine of up to $500 and up to 90 days in jail.
