Wythogan Park To Open Today

Knox Mayor Rick Chambers

Knox Mayor Rick Chambers has announced that Wythogan Park will open today.

The walking trail will be open to the public but visitors are asked to maneuver around the park with caution. Some areas will still be closed due to debris.

Contractors will continue working in the park until all of the debris is cleared out, but the majority of the larger logs and branches have been cleared from the park.

The park was closed after a July 24 storm reeled through the Knox area, causing thousands of dollars in damage within Wythogan Park. The storm also caused millions of dollars in damage to the Starke County Airport. The Starke County Courthouse suffered damage as well as the radio tower at the Starke County Sheriff’s Department. All entities are still attempting to pick up the pieces after the storm nearly two months later.
