COVID-19 Update - Active recreation areas are CLOSED

Post Date:03/21/2020 9:34 am

UPDATED to include skate park at Paramount School Park 

To maintain COVID-19 social distancing guidelines established by Public Health—Seattle & King County, all sports courts, playground equipment, the skate park, and other active recreation areas in Shoreline City parks are CLOSED.

The closure includes picnic shelters, basketball and tennis courts, ball fields, and other active recreation locations. Pick-up games, picnics, and other large gatherings will not be permitted.

Parks, natural areas, trails, and beaches where social distancing can be maintained remain open. Ball fields and playfields are open for walking and other non-team activities.

Restrooms within parks will continue to be open to the public and will be cleaned and sanitized twice a day.

We will place signs near park playgrounds, sports courts, and other active recreation areas to communicate this closure to the public.

We also ask park patrons to bring a suitable trash bag and leave no trash to help protect our park workers.

We encourage all park users to follow these National Parks & Recreation Agency guidelines for maintaining social distancing in parks and open spaces:

  • DO NOT use parks or trails if you are exhibiting symptoms.
  • Follow the CDC’s guidance on personal hygiene prior to and during use of parks or trails.
  • Prepare for limited access to public restrooms or water fountains. 
  • While on trails, warn other users of your presence as you pass, and step aside to let others pass.
  • Observe the CDC’s minimum recommended social distancing of 6 feet from other individuals at all times.
  • If this is not possible, users should find an alternate location or depart that space.
