In early August, Manhattan Beach officials closed the popular Sand Dune Park for maintenance after a busy Summer with a high rate of visitors. About a month later, it was ready to be reopened, but didn't.

"There is a organized group of residents fighting to close the dune permanently in order to discourage people from coming to their neighborhood," warns Jake Rome, a photographer who enjoys visiting the park. "Without a strong voice calling for the park to remain open to all, they may succeed."
