Marymoor Park is partially REOPENED
Dear Marymoor Park Visitor,
As you might have heard, King County Parks announced
that on Friday, May 8th, we will be re-opening our parks and trails,
with some restrictions. This includes regional and backcountry
trails, as well as fields, parking lots, trailheads, fishing access,
docks, and the off-leash area at Marymoor Park.
A detailed list of the status of park facilities
will be updated on our blog at
and you can read the news release
We are taking a phased approached to re-opening,
which will depend on visitors practicing safe distancing and
following public health guidelines. And we will continue to make
informed decisions based upon the COVID-19 data and guidance from
our public health experts.
Facilities such as restrooms, play areas, sports
courts, and picnic shelters, will remain closed. The campground at
Tolt-MacDonald Park remains closed, as does the Weyerhaeuser King
County Aquatic Center, the Jim Ellis Preston Community Center, and
the White Center Community Center. Organized activities and
programs, such as team sports, race events, swimming lessons,
volunteer work parties, and public gatherings remain suspended.
We know that you and the members of your group are
eager to enjoy the outdoors, exercise, and find respite in nature
during these stressful and uncertain times. We urge you to “recreate
responsibly” to keep each other safe and our parks and trails open.
Recreating responsibly means things like:
Keep your distance. Recreate with those in your
household. Give others plenty of room and communicate who will step
aside on the trail (trail etiquette gives hikers coming uphill the
right of way).
Stay local. Don’t stray too far from home when
recreating and keep rural communities safe by minimizing stops and
bringing all that you’ll need for your outing.
Keep it moving. Use parks and trails for walking,
running, riding, rolling, and passing through.
Plan ahead. Be prepared to go somewhere else if your
destination seems crowded. Add hand sanitizer and a mask or other
face covering to your 10 Essentials.
Play it safe. Keep your activities within your
comfort and skill level to reduce the risk of injury and adding to
the strain on our health care and emergency services. This includes
not attending or hosting gatherings like cookouts or barbeques.
Leave no trace. Take any garbage with you, including
disposable face masks and gloves.
You can report crowding, areas that need attention,
or other issues using King County Parks’ reporting tool,
We will post signs in our parks and along our trails
and use our social media channels to remind people about recreating
responsibly and ask that you carry these messages to your
Wash your hands, be healthy, and thanks for your
patience during this unprecedented time.
