GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Guilford Courthouse National Military Park closed Saturday following a federal government shutdown.
Park officials left a note on the park gates that read in part:
Due to the lapse in federal appropriations, the National Park Service (NPS) is unable to fully staff the properties under its management. It is not feasible to close or otherwise prohibit all access to NPS properties. Park visitors are advised to use extreme caution if choosing to enter NPS property, as NPS personnel will not be available to provide guidance, assistance, maintenance, or emergency response. Any entry onto NPS property during this period of federal government shutdown is at the visitor's sole risk.
The notice goes on to say that the military park, like other national parks, will be closed during the government shutdown period.
