The City of Paso Robles plans to install lighting at the playground in Downtown City Park.

The playground was originally installed in 2016 and has been popular, attracting tourists and locals. City officials said there is a demand for nighttime lighting at the park.

"I think it's a great opportunity for parents who work later and who don't get off until 5 o'clock," said Hannah Kropp, who often comes to the park. "I mean it's already getting dark around 5:30 now. It gives them a chance to take their kids out and play."

"We all recognize that encouraging children and families to spend time outdoors and doing physical activity contributes to their health and their well-being," said Julie Dahlen, City of Paso Robles Director of Community Services.

Dahlen said some sections of the playground will be closed during installation but expects the lighting to be installed by Christmas.
