New Ordinance Aims to Keep Parks Family Friendly

Thursday, June 6, 2013

A new city ordinance takes effect next week that bans the consumption of alcoholic beverages at Town Center Community Park during weekdays, Monday through Friday.

The intent of the law, which will be effective Monday, June 10, is to maintain a park-friendly atmosphere for children and families.

Consumption of alcohol is allowed on weekends and legal holidays, but beverages in glass containers or kegs of any size are not permitted. Alcohol is also allowed during special events that  have been issued a permit by the city.
The City Council voted for the ordinance in April after council members became concerned that drinkers were intimidating the public and deterring families from using playgrounds and other facilities at Town Center Community Park.

The same restrictions on alcohol have been in force for several years at Mast Park.

The public can report problems at city parks by using the Sheriff’s Department non-emergency number, (858) 565-5200.
