The park was nearly submerged on Monday, with swings and slides underwater. Authorities closed off nearby roads in the area.Nearby residents are concerned, and are keeping a close eye on the water.In nearby Austell, which endured record flooding in 2009, crews put up barricades along several roads threatened by rising waters.
