New Parking Area Opens At Marshall Hampton Reserve

A new parking lot has opened off Thornhill Road for Polk County’s Marshall Hampton Reserve.

The new lot is south of the old lot, which is now closed, and  just north of the Lake Lena Run Bridge.

The  old parking area and some of the land adjacent to it appears to be for sale as it will eventually be cut off from the rest of the site by the construction of the western leg of the Central Polk Parkway.

The new parking area appears to be closer to the portion of the Panther Point Trail south of the borrow pit.
