Is Madison Park open only to certain people?

OlympiaSeptember 26, 2013 

I just recently moved to Olympia and have a question about Madison Scenic Park. My son and I went there in the evening to walk my dogs. We barely got out of the truck when a woman came up to the truck, said the park was closed and threatened us by saying she already had our plate number.

My son read the sign, and there is no closing time on it. We were there around 8 p.m. The sign also did not mention that the park was to be exclusively used by only certain people. If this is the case, why is there not a No Trespassing sign?

If someone could clear up this matter for me, I’d appreciate it. I don’t like being threatened by someone when I have done nothing wrong and broken no laws.
