Chico, Calif. -- With crime on the rise in Chico and area parks are seeing the impacts.

The Chico Area Recreation and Park District this week approved a plan to make rules stricter and clearer, committing to handing out warnings and citations.

Workers at the Humboldt Skate Park today say they found broken liquor bottles, needles and drugs, in addition to graffati.

One parent says he'll still bring his kids out to the park - in the daytime at least.

CARD plans to make sure people know the rules, but keep in mind, if you break them, the penalties will now be steeper.

Cool today with clouds clearing out. This weekend will be sunny with some record breaking heat in the North Valley. High in the mid-60s next week with high fire danger.
