Storm damage closes portion of Golden Gate park

Published: Updated:

NAPLES, Fla.- A portion of the Golden Gate Community Park is currently closed because of damage caused by the strong storms that swept through Collier County on Sunday.

County leaders say the storm blew over a 75-foot light pole onto the baseball field, raising concerns that other lights may also fall. The nearby gym and aquatic center will remain closed while crews assess other lights.

“I’m very disappointed,” said Bernice Moffitt. “I look forward to coming down here and getting myself hopefully healthier with the sunshine and the exercise.”

It’s unknown at this time when the gym and aquatic center will re-open.
