These types of parks have multiple trails accessing the area and people will not be inclined to register at a certain point when they just want to take their pooch for a walk. There's already people walking their dogs in closed areas and there isn't the enforcement.

It wouldn't be expensive and most people who use these parks would likely be more than willing to cooperate. Having a daily record of people using the parks could not hurt.

Problem is the arsonist is unlikely to register using his real name. Imagine authorities try to track down I. B. Fyry

A few discreetly placed spycams would probably accomplish more, and they aren't that expensive anymore these days.

Well we have partially closed the backcountry but an urban wild park remains open. In previous years people go up by the hundreds to watch.

A few of them will be puffing and i'm sure drinking and puffing
