Its freaking ridiculous. Utterly depressing... W'e've seen the effects of closing down beach parking lots in Sonoma County. At Bean Street for instance, there is graffiti all over the place, trash cans overflowing with garbage that is getting dumped and ignored, trash on the beach, etc. and those are just the obvious effects. Shutting down the parks means that any efforts toward environmental restoration and protection will be set back majorly and even reversed in many cases. Oh and so much for trying to get a job with the parks!
Oh and about the parking lot thing... It might be a park by park thing. I know around here they have shut the gates on the parking lots but there are usually places to park just outside of the gates. I know Gray Whale doesn't have any gates so I don't know how they would prevent people from entering, other than threatening citations for entering the beach.
yea its pretty sad. montara wasn't being maintained because of budget cuts about a year back and all the trash bins were overflowed and the weeds were growing rampant. I can't imagine them shutting down the lot @ gwhale because all of the trucks working on the devil's slide project use it as a transfer station for their trailers. once that is done though they could just chain off the lot. there is hardly any parking outside the lot so.... maybe square will buy a helicopter finally and we won't have to worry
