I saw a Bald Eagle again today off Riverside Dr.....
HELEN WOOD PARK IS CLOSED ...
According to Mobile City Parks, Hurricane Nate did the most significant damage at Helen Wood Park near the tip of the peninsula on the western shore of Mobile Bay in the mouth of Dog River. The PARK IS NOW CLOSED until further notice.
The popular fishing pier is now on the northside of DIP; the potties have been destroyed and generally the place is a wreck with storm debris brought in by the waves.
Officials say they are assessing how to make the park safe before reopening, however due to the extent of damage, repairs will take time.
Meanwhile, McNally Park fared rather well with mostly storm debris leading to and around the jetties. The Parks department say that the debris will be cleared soon. The Perch Creek side is open. ... See MoreSee Less

It is with the heaviest of hearts that we announce we have to postpone our Saturday event due to the latest forecasted track and anticipated effects of Hurricane Nate.
Most committee members & volunteers live on this Peninsula - Mobile's coastal community - and the safety and well being of these people, our vendors and guests are of the utmost importance to us.
Please mark your calendars as we plan to bring this event to you Saturday, April 21st BEFORE hurricane season!!!
Thank you to our many sponsors and vendors who were dedicated to showing off Mobile's waterfront. We'll see you in the Spring!
Stay safe everyone! ... See MoreSee Less
