While individuals should continue to visit their neighborhood parks, Seattle Parks and Recreation has implemented the following steps ahead of the weekend at the largest parks: 

  • Deploying 60 Social Distancing Ambassadors. Parks Ambassadors began last weekend and will be at all major parks to remind people to social distance and not gather. These ambassadors will take hourly data on usage and parks will be closed if usage is too high.   
  • Installation of hundreds of new signs reminding the public of Keep It Moving expectations 
  • All basketball courts, athletic fields, and tennis courts will be closed for use. 
  • New Reporting for Lack of Social Distancing: The public can report any lack of social distancing to Seattle Parks and Recreation through social media, calling (206) 684-4075, or emailing [email protected]
