VIGO COUNTY, Ind. (WTHI) - Hawthorn Park Beach will close in 2018.

That decision came down at the Vigo County Parks Board meeting.

They say the two members on staff will now focus on Fowler Park Beach operations.

We previously reported vandalism was an issue at the parks.

According to the Vigo County Parks Department, they were also dealing with aging infrastructure.
