The park, located at 1551 Moffett Road in Wilmer, will be open from 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. for limited daytime use, 7-days a week. This highly anticipated opening will allow public access to the beach and picnic areas, which include renovated restrooms, pavilions, picnic tables and grills.

However, park patrons may bring personal canoes or kayaks to launch. Playground areas and exercise equipment, along with the swimming pool at River Delta Marina, will remain closed until further notice.
