Winter

Just wanted to let everyone know that the Grant County Park’s gate will be closed for the winter months effective Monday, November 6th. If you are one of our walkers, you may park in the Whippy Dip parking lot and enter through the small pass and still walk in the park. If you have any questions, you may call the Parks office at 859.428.4500. Thank you!
