"People are ready to get out and enjoy the outdoors, even with the COVID-19 precautions," Maguire said. "Evidence of this is seen at Belk Park with families fishing, picnicking, and using the walking path. Golfers at Belk are filling the tee times. These types of events give a psychological boost to everyone that has been sequestered at home for so long. I'm pleased that Wood River has such facilities for the enjoyment of the public."
