Hazard Police Department (HPD) closed a section of Herman Maggard Park in Perry County Wednesday after a six-foot sinkhole opened at the end of the park.

HPD Assistant Chief Joseph Engle said he does not expect the sinkhole to grow.

Police tape cordoned off the section of the park where the sinkhole is.

Engle said the City of Hazard plans to fix the sinkhole soon.

Until the sinkhole is fixed, Engle asks people to be careful while visiting the park.
