Gainesville Parks and Recreation in process of repairing eight-foot deep sinkhole

By Lauren Hunter Multimedia Journalist

The Gainesville Parks and Recreation Department is in the process of repairing an eight-foot deep sinkhole that has developed in Rock Creek Veterans Park in downtown Gainesville.

The sinkhole is located beneath a sidewalk off to one side of the park.

According to a press release from the City of Gainesville, park officials were notified about the sinkhole, which at the time was only about two feet deep, on Monday, February 3rd. Heavy rainfall over the course of the week has caused the hole to grow to its current size.

Barricades and caution tape currently surround the sinkhole, but the park is still open to the public.
