Going to rant a little bit here. I went to go get the tag, fully expecting a ton of traffic and pedestrians, idiot drivers, and shitty parking with it. Now I have been down to this park many times both for the 4th and not. The worst I remember was people asking for donations, not enforced payment to an otherwise public road to a public park. Needless to say I didn't feel like getting into a pissing match with the minimum wage security guard just doing his job, and I took a nearby road to get the pick.
Yes I am too lazy and too cheap to get off my bike to get my wallet and fork over $1 to enter a park on a road my taxes already pay for.
