      (2)   When attending or participating in an activity authorized by a permit or permission issued pursuant to this Code.  However, family parties or small picnic groups shall not be permitted between the hours of dusk and dawn.
   (C)   It shall be unlawful for any person to willfully enter upon or remain within any city parks during such hours as the parks are closed to public use or on other property owned by the city that is closed to the public.  Such presence shall be grounds for immediate issuance of a citation or arrest.
