Most Delaware State Parks will reopen on Wednesday, the Halloween holiday, while a few others will remain closed due to the effects of Hurricane Sandy.
Day use areas at most Delaware State Parks will reopen at 8 a.m. Wednesday for normal operations with some notable exceptions due to Hurricane Sandy's impact, according to the Delaware Department of Natural Resources & Environmental Control.
Exceptions are the Brandywine Zoo, Cape Henlopen State Park and Delaware Seashore State Park, all of which remain closed for cleanup and assessment of Sandy's impact until further notice, DNREC spokesman Michael Globetti said Tuesday.
Campsites, cabins and yurts at Lums Pond and Trap Pond State Parks will also reopen for normal operations on Wednesday, Oct. 31, Globetti said. Killens Pond State Park campsites and cabins will reopen on Thursday, Nov. 1.
However, campsites, cabins and cottages at Delaware Seashore and Cape Henlopen State Parks remain closed and will reopen as soon as is feasible, he said.
