Dade Historical Battlefield Park in Bushnell is on a list of 53 state parks the state Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) has proposed closing, according to DEP spokesperson Kristin Lock.
In their legislative budget requests for fiscal year 2011-2012, all state agencies were asked to reduce their annual operating costs by 15 percent, which amounts to $52 million for the DEP. Officials within that agency decided $11.3 million in budget cuts could be obtained by closing public access to Dade Battlefield Historic Park and 52 other state parks.
