Park Seasonal Hours

Balch Park will not reopen to the public this year. Parks crews have been working diligently all summer to upgrade the electrical system from above ground to underground wiring, which is much safer and reduces the likelihood of fires. This project has been a significant undertaking, and unfortunately, we do not anticipate it being complete in time to reopen this year. We do apologize for the inconvenience and look forward to seeing you all next year!
