So it's just for park operations but people can still use it after closing?

Think so. Technically the Eastside trail also follows the CoA Park hours of operation (06:00 - 23:00). I know I've been down there later / earlier than that, and so were plenty of others.

Any thoughts on why this happens? Is it density-related? Politics? Something particular to the NW geography?

Some of it is related to the geography and large areas of railroad that would have to be crossed, much of which is quite active.

But some of it, in my opinion, just comes with being sort of a forgotten part of the city. The east side has "blowed up", so of course they would get the first sections and resulting development. The south and lower west side areas have very little geographical resistance and are ripe for beltline-inspired development. The north just has money.

We aren't rich, but aren't poor. We aren't gentrified, but aren't run down. We're just kind of here.

The feds recently announced that $600,000 will be awarded to Atlanta through a national program meant to plan, build, and beef up parks and recreation spaces in underserved communities.

The local project will transform a vacant, wooded, 1.5-acre property adjacent to Enota Park into a multi-purpose play field, playground, and entry plaza for bicyclists and pedestrians on the Westside Trail, officials said.

True indeed, neighbor. We are currently at about $130k in equity in Westview. About a block or two from this park. We are literally on the map...

But then some will complain about gentrification and have protected bike lanes removed.
