Waterfront Park to Close for Music Fest

The County’s Waterfront Park will be closed to the public Saturday, Sept. 30 and Sunday, Oct. 1 for the CRSSD music festival.

Preparations for the festival get underway Wednesday, Sept. 27 and access to the park will be limited in some areas through Friday, Sept. 29. Metered parking spots will be off limits Wednesday, Sept. 27 through Monday, Oct. 2.

However, the playground area 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 weekend festival. Attendees are urged to use public transportation or a ride service. The County Center/Little Italy trolley stop is located one block east of the Waterfront Park.

The park will re-open to the public at 6 a.m. on Monday, Oct. 2 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. The park will resume normal operations Tuesday, Oct. 3.
