Can you read this sign in the dark? It was a little after 5:00 p.m. when I took these photos.
CatMac has pointed to the fact that the hours open are wrong in the final line of the sign (the photo on the left was taken with the flash; so if you are in the park after dark with a light source, you will be able to read the warning of closure). The last line seems to be a recent edition as it appears more white and less yellowed than the stencil above it.
Again, if these are the only changes that the state makes to secure Bicentennial Mall from 10:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m. (or is it 11:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.?!) is to stencil a few signs does that make you feel safer?
UPDATE: This unedited, unretouched, but flash-assisted photo--blurrier because of the low-light, longer-aperture conditions--shows the contrast between the newer bottom line and the aged and weathered lines above it on a "park rules" sign in a different part of the park.
