The Department of Recreation and Parks ordered the closure for the entire weekend until conditions improve
Because fires near Los Angeles County like the Bobcat Fire which started in the Azusa area and El Dorado Fire, which have burned thousands of acres and damaged air quality, authorities are taking steps to protect residents.
One of them is the closure of various county parks due to poor air quality and the effects this could have on vulnerable people.
