Did a gate get stuck, or did someone actually lock it?

Actually lock, just writing my log.

Anyone know if this park regularly closes at night (in which case I would have expected a reasonably prominent sign to that effect), or whether it was freelancing by a local who considers a public park to be locals' private property (something I've seen occasionally in other parts of town)? If it's the latter a word with the council is probably warranted.

I was a relatively late starter and came through here at the end of my course, so can't have missed this by too much myself.

The locals up at Jorgensen Park in Kalamunda consider it their private dog walking facility but there aren't any gates or fences. It has got to the point that we can't have MTB races up there because they complain loudly and the council relents to them. If an event ever does sneak through they have a habit of going around and moving or throwing away markings/controls (or putting bodies on course...)

We had a friend with us who grew up round the corner. He reckons the reserve is locked/unlocked by the artist in residence who lives in the house in the reserve. We didn't see anyone. He also thought he always used to be locked at dusk, there was no sign as far as i could see.

Were the gates open when you went through or just unlocked?
