ALACHUA COUNTY, FL – The County’s two busiest parks, Jonesville and Veterans Memorial, are cleaned up and opened. County staff is diligently working on opening all parks, which will be opened as ready. Other than Poe Spring Park, all parks should be available by tomorrow (Friday, September 1, 2023).
Due to public safety concerns, Alachua County’s Poe Springs Park will remain closed through the Labor Day weekend and until further notice due to dangerously high waters and an enormous amount of potentially dangerous debris. The safety concerns are exacerbated by heavy rains associated with IDALIA. The spring water level will continue to rise until the expected cresting this Sunday. 
The public will be notified when the park reopens.
