Gum Grove Park temporarily closed due to fire danger

Gum Grove Park has been temporarily closed due to increased fire danger amidst high winds and heat.

Out of an abundance of caution, the City of Seal Beach has temporarily closed Gum Grove Park. The National Weather Service has issued a wind advisory until 4:00pm today, and a heat advisory through Sunday. This closure will help mitigate the risk of fire in the park.

The City of Seal Beach will advise the public when the park is reopened.
