Los Encinos State Historic Park Poised for Closure, Hopes to Rally Support
Although there has been no official or final list of California State Park closures issued, an email newsletter sent by the park's Docents Association notes that "as Los Encinos has been on the last two draft closure lists, it seems likely that it will be on the next. These closures will probably take place some time after the Labor Day weekend."
Possible solutions presently being tossed around to help keep parks open is the ides of "public-private partnerships," which is something Los Encinos is considering pursuing. The park is welcoming everyone this Saturday from 12-4 to host "a gathering of concerned citizens at the Park to show our support," and provide everyone, including folks from the local historical re-enactment community in Victorian costume, with "a chance to talk, connect and discuss [Los Encinos'] next moves."
