Top of the Park rumored to close by end of year

SAN DIEGO -- The newest landlord of Inn at the Park, Wyndham Vacation Ownership, is remaining tight-lipped over reported plans to end public access to the property’s popular rooftop space, Top of the Park. Yet according to a source who works at the seven-story historic landmark, Wyndham has already informed key staffers that the space will close on Jan. 31.

“There’ll be no more Friday happy hours, no weddings, no anything,” insisted the employee, adding that Wyndham made it known to management at least a month ago that the roof will be converted into a lounge and fitness center designated for timeshare holders only.

The employee who spoke about the rumored changes requested anonymity, saying that, “anyone who talks about them would be fired.”

For at least two decades, Top of the Park has been home to LGBT happy hours on Fridays and a host of fundraisers and private parties organized year-round by LGBT and other community organizations. It also operates as a restaurant, providing weekday lunch service to locals and tourists alike.
