Revised Monday, March 8, 2021
- Delridge Community Center‘s power is out, and childcare, preschool and hygiene shower programs are cancelled for the day. Operations are expected to be up and running tomorrow (3/9/21).
- Jackson Park’s golf driving range is closed through Wednesday, March 10, due to field safety and ball supply issues. We will assess the site later in the week and keep you posted on the results.
We are in the process of determining which programs and activities are feasible for 2021. When visiting the Seattle Parks and Recreation website, be aware that many pages contain outdated information, and will be updated when the way forward is clear. To learn how the pandemic has affected our 2021 operating budget, please visit this post.
Please be advised that the status of activities listed on this page is subject to change at any time. Most facilities remain closed due to the pandemic.
Medgar Evers Pool in Central Seattle opened to the public for lap swimming and independent water fitness on Feb. 17. Hours are from 11:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. Pool admission must be reserved in advance online or via phone 206-684-4766. The first reservations can be made on Feb. 10 starting at noon. Full details here.
Almost all parking lots are open. Exceptions: the Green Lake west lots near the row house; lower and upper Woodland Park except for the lots near the ballfields; Atlantic St. Boat Launch; and the upper lots at Seward Park due to a long-term construction project. (Lower lots are open.)
Atlantic City Boat Launch is closed to accommodate the City’s COVID-19 testing site. Boaters, please use Stan Sayres launch, 4 miles north, as an alternate. Most other boat launches are open, with adjacent parking open as well, except for Ferdinand St. Strict guidelines are in place; read those here.
