Visitors ignore 'No Trespassing' signs, tear up grass at Seattle's Gas Works Park

SEATTLE -- A plan to keep Gas Works Park green for generations to come is not panning out.

The city fenced off the park's popular kite hill in September to lay down new soil and asked everyone to keep off until at least Memorial Day.

At some point part of the fence was moved, and hundreds of people have been walking right past the ‘No Trespassing’ signs to climb to the top.

Q13 FOX News reached out to Seattle Parks and Recreation, but they were unaware that the fence had been moved.

If all of the foot traffic tears up the grass even more, the department could be forced to close off the hill for an even longer. They would also have to pour more money into repairing the soil.
