Are there plans to clear brush at the southwestern tip of Hugh MacRae Park

Shannan Bowen

The trees, thick shrubs and other plants surrounding county parks offer protection for nearby businesses and homes, so it isn’t likely to be cleared anytime soon.

Jim McDaniel, director of New Hanover County Parks, Gardens and Senior Resources, said the buffer zones around Hugh MacRae Park – made of plants, bushes and trees – help “minimize foot traffic, sound and light from intruding on the neighboring properties.”

He added that open borders invite park visitors to cut through neighboring yards or parking lots to access the park, so natural plants and other brush help prevent this.
