PALATKA, Fla., Sept. 17, 2017 — Two properties within the St. Johns River Water Management District’s service area are open to public recreation, including hunting. The openings were made as the district continues an in-depth assessment of recreational access points, levees, trails, and boat ramps.
The following properties are reopened, some with limited access as repairs are made.
All other district lands, including the Lake Apopka Wildlife Drive, remain closed. The district continues to assess damage to its lands resulting from Hurricane Irma, with a goal to reopen the properties for recreational uses as soon as it is safe to do so.
