PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT

Park Parking Lot to Close at 9:30 p.m.

(Monday, July 1/2002)-- Effective Wednesday, July 3rd, both the upper and lower parking lots of Point Pleasant Park will be closed and locked at 9:30 p.m.

Point Pleasant Park, however, will remain open to the public until midnight daily.

The move is being made in an effort to curb heavy traffic flow to and from the lots, particularly the lower lot, in the evenings. The busy congestion has resulted loud vehicle noise and a number of Motor Vehicle infractions.

It is hoped the early evening parking lot closures will help to restore the peace and tranquility of Point Pleasant Park and perhaps even encourage more people to walk to the Park, rather than driving.
