National Parks around the country are closed as the partial government shutdown enters day 12.

Residents near Great Falls Park spoke with ABC7 News hoping that the shutdown ends sooner rather than later.

The main entrance at Old Dominion and Georgetown Pike closed because it's illegal to park along the road, and police have already written dozens of parking tickets.

ABC7's Drew Wilder has more on this story in the above video.
