The popular pump track at the Pacific Highlands Ranch Community Park will close temporarily starting Monday, Oct. 5 for the construction of a new fence. A public notice stated the work could take up to six months.
The city will be installing the 12-foot fence around the perimeter of the track in an effort to improve security and discourage use of the track outside normal operating hours—neighbors have complained that people have used the track as late as 1 a.m. on the weekends. When the higher fence goes up, the operating hours will remain the same.
While the pump track will remain closed throughout the construction process, the skate plaza in the park will remain open for use.
