The most difficult aspect of turf management is compaction. Thousands of people enjoy park lawns, and this constant pressure from foot traffic squeezes the soil and restricts the root growth of the grass. Compaction is most severe when the soils are waterlogged after it rains. To mitigate compaction, it is vital to close the lawns on a weekly schedule, after big events, and any time they become very wet. At least one lawn on each pier will always remain open for your enjoyment.
Please note that lawns will occasionally close for periodic maintenance for issues other than compaction mitigation.
No, drones are not permitted in the Park.
