CUMNOCK–The Deep River Park in Cumnock is a very popular spot for fishing, canoeing, walking and just sitting and relaxing.  It’s been  there since 1992, and attracts people from all around the state, and beyond.  Its founder, Margaret Jordan-Ellis, who knows the complete history of the Camelback bridge, says that the bridge is in need of a new coat of paint…But, its not that simple. She says environmental regulations require that all 32,000 square feet of the bridge be enclosed while its painted to keep any traces of lead paint from getting to the Deep River.  Jordan-Ellis said the project will cost about $237,500.
