Seattle Parks and Recreation Summer 2023 Hours at Golden Gardens and Alki Beach for summer 2023 

Seattle Parks and Recreation will enact a second phase pilot shortening the hours at Golden Gardens and Alki Beach during the 2023 summer months from 4 A.M.-10:30 P.M. from May 26-September 4. And a return to 4 A.M. – 11:30 P.M after September 4.

The shortened hours will assist in addressing dangerous and/or illegal behavior typical of summer evening uses at these two parks in response to public input and nearby community complaints. 
This program is a pilot and will be reviewed at a Board of Parks and Recreation Commissioners after the Summer to help determine the best operating hours for the public. This review will be informed by public comments from the questionnaire below, public comment given at the Board meeting, and data collected throughout the pilot period. 

During the Summer 2023 Season, Seattle Parks and Recreation staff, assisted by Seattle Police Department staff, will begin closing down these two beach locations starting at 10:00 P.M.  

Public input can be provided here. 

Additionally, designated fire pits will be available for beach fires this summer beginning Friday, May 26, 2023.
