SMITHVILLE — Colder weather is on its way and with it some of Smithville Lake's amenities will close.
Open through Thursday, Oct. 31, Paradise Pointe Marina and the Sand Bar restaurant will be closed for the winter.
Though it was a short-lived season for The Sand Bar, which opened Aug. 24, the new addition was well-received, according to a Clay County press release.
Following the winter season, the restaurant will have a grand opening.
County staff encourage area residents to squeeze in their final trips to the marina before Halloween, although dock walkways will still be tended and Camp Branch Marina will remain open all winter.
