The County’s Waterfront Park, including the playground, will be closed to the public Saturday, March 4 and Sunday, March 5 for the CRSSD music festival.

Preparations for the festival get underway Wednesday and access to the park and metered parking spots will be limited in some areas Wednesday through Friday as the promoter installs equipment and fencing for the event. The playground and restroom in the southeast corner of the park and the south fountain will remain open until the park’s regular closing time at 10 p.m. on Friday night.

Only ticket-holders over the age of 21 will be allowed into the festival. Attendees are urged to use public transportation or a ride service.

The park will re-open to the public at 6 a.m. on Monday, March 6 with the exception of the civic greens and the West Plaza. Those areas will be closed so festival operators can break down the equipment and remove the fencing. Metered parking spots along Harbor Drive will be off-limits as well. The park will resume normal operations Tuesday, March 7.

For more information about the park closure, call (619) 232-PARK (7275).
