The city parks department in it's infinite wisdom has locked the gates to the park to impede vehicular traffic.

The City of Portland is preparing for the occupation of Mount Tabor, which is scheduled to start at 5 pm Friday, by closing all roads into the park.
Portland Parks & Recreation regularly closes the gates that give cars access to Mount Tabor Park on Wednesdays for maintenance. But this morning, those gates remained closed—as the parks department steels itself for Camp Cascadia, a camping protest organized by Occupy Portland veterans and water purity activists to fight the closing of the Mount Tabor reservoirs.
