Pokémon trainers rejoice after council extends hours at some parks

Medford, Ore. — The Medford city council is making it a bit easier for Pokémon trainers to “catch ’em all”. In a unanimous decision the council voted to keep two Medford parks open until midnight.

According to local police a lot of people were entering public parks after 10:30 in an effort to catch the fictional creatures.

Pokémon trainers tell NBC5 News they are thrilled with the change.

“It’s great cause a lot of people come out during nighttime to catch specific Pokémon,” Katharine MacKay says, “because at nighttime you can ghost types or poison types.”

The pilot program will allow residents to use Alba Park and Pear Blossom Park until midnight. The provision will be in place until at least September 1st.
