Seattle Parks & Recreation COVID-19 impacts: All recreation facilities continue closures until at least May 4

In
alignment with Governor Inslee’s statewide ‘Stay Home, Stay Healthy’ order,
Mayor Jenny Durkan has announced that the City of Seattle’s policies on
facility closures and permit suspensions will be extended until at least May 4,
2020.

All programming, rentals, and
permitted events will remain canceled, and all community centers, pools,
environmental learning centers, and all other recreation facilities will remain
closed to the public until at least May 4. In addition, parking at
Green Lake, Lincoln, Golden Gardens, Seward Park, Magnuson Park, Gas
Works, Alki Beach, and Discovery Park will be closed until at least
May 4. 

“Limiting
person-to-person contact is saving lives, and extending the ‘Stay Home, Stay
Healthy’ order is critical to continuing to flatten the curve,” says Mayor
Durkan. And while preliminary data says our efforts are working, she is
concerned that “too many individuals continue gathering in our parks and are
not maintaining physical distancing. For the health of our community, we all
must do our part. This is a marathon, not a sprint, and we will get through
this if we continue to look out for one another’s health and wellbeing.”

For a
list of what remains open and closed, please
