An unexpected winter wonderland at PineHurst Park in Laurel

LAUREL, MS (WDAM) - People passing by Pinehurst Park in downtown Laurel got an unexpected winter wonderland Tuesday morning.

The park is located on North 5th Ave. right across from city hall. City officials say they believe someone  may have deliberately turned on the sprinkler system overnight. The system has a manual turn on located at the park. During the day the park was taped off to keep people safe from the ice.

Parks department will have to wait for the ice to melt before assessing any damage.
