Gazebos and shelters at the following parks will be closed to the public from 6 p.m. until 6 a.m. starting Fri., Dec. 10:

  • Arnada Park
  • David Douglas Park
  • Esther Short Park, including the Slocum House patio and porch
  • Evergreen Park
  • Fisher Basin Park
  • LeRoy Haagen Memorial Park
  • Leverich Park
  • Marine Park
  • Marshall Park
  • Shumway Park

Signs will be posted on the structures to notify park visitors of the change in hours. Longer hours will resume on March 14, 2022, when Daylight Saving Time begins.

“The facilities at the park are best used during the daylight hours,” said Julie Hannon, director of the Parks, Recreation and Cultural Services Department. “We want to ensure that our visitors have the safest and most enjoyable experience at our parks. As it gets darker earlier in the evening during the winter, gazebo and shelter hours at parks must change to reflect that. Come spring, these structures at our parks will be open longer.”

Facilities at select parks may occasionally be open during evening hours in the winter for permitted special events and programs.
