JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- For the second year in a row, portions of Huguenot Park were closed to visitors on Memorial Day.
According to officials at Huguenot Park, they were at maximum occupancy by 10:00 a.m. Monday, which was exaggerated by the incoming tide scheduled to be at the highest point at 10:50 a.m.
The park started allowing visitors back onto the grounds two hours after high tide, which was a little before 1:00 p.m.
The closure is caused at least four miles of traffic delays on nearby access roads.
In 2012 officials evacuated Huguenot Park and Hanna Park due to high winds caused by Tropical Storm Beryl.
