Seattle Parks and Recreation temporarily canceling programs for seniors

On March 4, Public Health – Seattle & King County released new recommendations regarding COVID-19, including guidance for people at higher risk for severe COVID-19 illness. This guidance recommends that people over 60 years of age should stay home and away from large groups of people as much as possible.

With this information, Seattle Parks and Recreation (SPR) is canceling all of our Lifelong Recreation classes, trips, and drop-in programs for seniors. Lifelong Recreation programs will be canceled starting Thursday, March 5 at least through Saturday, March 21. SPR will continue to consult with, and follow the guidance of, public health partners and will re-evaluate this program cancellation on an ongoing basis.

Please check the following resources for updates about SPR operations and facilities:
