DNREC Secretary Shawn M. Garvin was joined by Sen. Gerald Hocker, R-Ocean View, and Rep. Ronald Gray, R-Selbyville, and other supporters at a ribbon-cutting ceremony to celebrate numerous recent enhancements at Holts Landing State Park in Dagsboro. Improvements include a new playground, an improved, ADA-accessible hiking trail, and a freshly paved parking area and roadway.
“Since 2016, the Division of Parks & Recreation, with the financial support of Sen. Gerald Hocker and Rep. Ronald Gray, along with the tireless support of the Friends of Holts Landing State Park, has undertaken a number of projects to enhance the visitor experience at this oasis on the southern shore of the Indian River Bay,” said Garvin. “I thank them for making these many improvements possible.”
Construction is also underway on a new boardwalk that will stretch more than 600 feet across marsh to complete the Sea Hawk Trail loop, and a viewing platform that will overlook the marsh.
