Keys View overlook is temporarily closed due to increased bee activity.

Park officials are closing the area to visitors for safety, as well as to reduce moisture from cars which attracts bees in the summer. Bees require this extra water to cool their hives during the hottest days. They will pester visitors for their water bottles, the condensation from their vehicle air conditioners, and even their sweat.

This closure will reduce water available for the bees and give them time to leave the area.

Keys View is closed due to swarming bees. It will reopen when staff determine conditions are safe again.

Here is some “pawsome” advice for walking your pets. Be sure to walk them in the early morning or late afternoon to avoid burn injuries. An injured dog will turn your visit into a “ruff” one. 🐶 #FindYourPark #FridayThoughts
