State Surrenders Neglected Park
(Belleville, IL) — The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is taking back a park at Carlyle Lake from the state of Illinois because of years of neglect. The feds say the facilities at South Shore State Park have been degraded to the point where they’re unsafe and possibly dangerous. Under federal control again, the park has been closed and will be repaired in time for use next year. The Illinois Department of Natural Resources blames the lack of a state budget for the conditions in the park.
