DETROIT LAKES, MN--Closing times of Detroit Lakes parks are now in sync. The Detroit Lakes City Council amended the ordinance governing the closing time of the public parks and beach at the July meeting Tuesday. Prior to the change, parks around the city had varying closing times. The uniform closing time was recommended by Detroit Lakes Police Chief Steve Todd who said a uniform closing time another tool for law enforcement. All city parks will now close at 10:30pm and the public beach will close at 2:00am. Parks and the beach will open daily at 5:30am. Another public safety issue was addressed as a no parking zone is in place just to the west of the new Holiday gas station in Detroit Lakes. The public safety committee recommended the change per a request by Essentia St Mary's EMS who's garage is located on McKinley Ave.
