If you are thinking about beach diving redondo, itís closed. There have been too many people on the beach and strand. The county owns the beach, and it is not yet closed, but the city has closed all that they control, all the beach parking lots, beach access paths, etc. Including all the parking at Veteranís park. A statement from the mayor said that they were trying to do this in coordination with other cities and the county, but things have started moving quickly and everyone has moved as fast as they can unilaterally. This was announced late yesterday and went into effect at midnight last night, probably to get ahead of the weekend and warm weather coming. I would expect this, or something similar, to hit all of LA county and probably other counties.

Closure is until 4/24 but may be extended, itís basically indefinite.
