The Encinitas Parks and Recreation Commission on May 19 heard a plan that calls for reducing the hours at some local parks.
Thirteen smaller city parks, including Leucadia Oaks Park and Orpheus Park, are open from 5 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily. Under a proposal from the Encinitas Parks and Recreation Department, the new hours would be sunrise to sunset. This would provide law enforcement with consistency, the staff report stated.
Hours would also be scaled back at the 44-acre Encinitas Community Park. It’s open from 5 a.m. to 10 p.m., and this would change to sunrise to sunset.
