Havre de Grace Waterfront Parks Reopen

The barricades are down and the public is welcome, according to city officials.

On Thursday, the waterfront parks in Havre de Grace reopened. They had been closed since 9 p.m. Sunday, when Mayor Wayne Dougherty declared the city's parks bordering water to be closed in preparation for Hurricane Sandy.

Dougherty said he would not reopen the parks until it was deemed safe. Earlier in the week, with tides rising from Hurricane Sandy, police were stationed outside the parks to enforce barricades.

By Thursday morning, all but the Promenade had reopened. The Promenade was cleared for public access Thursday afternoon following work on one small section, according to city spokesman Jim Newby.

“As a whole," Newby said Thursday, "we’re getting close to being back to normal.”
