Enjoy The New Hours of Operation At Gladys Park
(Below text excerpted from the Newsletter)
The Gladys Park hours of operation have been extended to coincide with the change to Daylight Savings Time. The park hours will now be open from 9:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m daily.
Gladys Park is one of the two Skid Row Parks in Council District 14 that were recently threatened with closing at the end of January due to the lack of funds and the state’s dismantling of the City’s redevelopment agency. Councilmember Huizar offered up $50,000 in discretionary funding to keep San Julian Park open and worked with the City’s Recreation and Parks Department to take over day-to-day services at Gladys Park. Gladys Park is operating with the same park hours that existed when the SRO Housing Corporation operated the park.
