A reminder for Wilderness Park users
Hikers at the Claremont Hills Wilderness Park may have some leeway to buy parking passes—metered parking will not be enforced until April 1—but City Manager Tony Ramos emphasized park rangers will enforce park hours starting immediately.
Approved by the council in December, park hours will now rotate every month to coincide with the year’s fluctuating dawn and dusk times. This month the park will be open from 6:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
Here's how the new park hours will look for the rest of the year:
-January: 6:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.
-February:6:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
-March: 6:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.
-April: 6 a.m. to 7:30 p.m.
-May: 5:30 a.m. to 8 p.m.
-June: 5:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m.
-July: 5:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m.
-August: 6 a.m. to 8 p.m.
-September: 6:30 a.m. to 7 p.m.
-October: 6:30 a.m. to 6 p.m.
-November: 6 a.m. to 5 p.m.
-December: 6:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Claremont police offers will give citations to those hikers found in the park after the listed times. Violators are subject to a $50 fine.
