The town of Flomaton reopened the walking trails at town parks and the fishing lake at Hurricane Park Tuesday afternoon with some restrictions.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic the Flomaton Town Council voted March 16 to close all parks until further notice.

Mayor Dewey Bondurant, Jr., and the town council agreed to reopen the parks Tuesday. However, the order says there will be no baseball field use, no basketball court use, no playground use, no use of tennis courts and no gatherings of 10 or more people.

Mayor Bondurant said those using the park will be required to maintain social distancing and noted the police department will continue to patrol the parks.

The parks are open from 4:30 a.m. to 11 p.m. each day.

In addition to the walking trails and lake being open, the boat landing on Big Escambia Creek at the Frank P. 'Skippy' White South Bridge on Highway 31 is opened.

Mayor Bondurant also said Alabama fishing laws must be obeyed at the lake
