Why does the park close at sunset?
All parks in the City close at sunset. This is for safety as most parks in the City are not lighted and not permitting people in the parks after sunset reduces illegal activities. On the Trail, after sunset, the chance of a wild animal encounter is greater and due to darkness you may not see the animal until too late. Also, more snakes are on the pavement getting the last warmth.
