Storm season

As weather becomes more unpredictable, we are at a greater risk for power outages and downed trees. If you see storm damage in a park, please call our 24-hour maintenance line to report it at 206-684-7250. You may also call our 24-hour Park Duty Officer at 206-982-4583 to report issues.

We appreciate reports on Facebook and Twitter, but those networks are only monitored Monday-Friday, 8 a.m.-5 p.m.
