Ascarate Love Locks
The Ascarate Park maintenance team hand built and welded a heart shaped metal structure that is installed along the eastern shore of the lake. Couples can place locks on the hearts to signify their love. Love locks are a tradition started in Europe and are symbolic of everlasting love. Locks can be attached to the hearts and left as part of the display. Photos of the locks can be shared on social media with #loveascarate.
Park visitors are asked to keep their key or dispose of it in the designated area. Throwing the key into the lake will be considered littering and can result in expulsion from the park. Locks cannot be placed elsewhere in the park and will be removed. The structure will stay in the park as a semi-permanent display. Locks placed on the structure will not be monitored or maintained by park staff and are subject to removal at park management's discretion.
