All adult fitness equipment in Seattle parks will reopen to the public on October 6. Seattle Parks and Recreation staff, with support from our partners at the Washington Department of Health and Seattle King County Public Health, have created some guidelines that can keep us all safe while using these spaces.
How to use adult fitness equipment safely:
- Fitness equipment is open to five or fewer people at a time
- Stay home if you are sick or if anyone in your family is sick.
- Please wash your hands before and after use
- You must wear a mask. See here for mask information and exception because of disability.
- Give yourself and others at least six feet of space.
Please be aware that fitness equipment is not regularly sanitized or cleaned.
Here are a few tips on how to keep us all safe and keep these spaces open:
- Stay for a short time (30 min. or less) to give everyone an opportunity to use the equipment
- Visit parks during less busy times.
- Mornings are less busy than afternoons
- Weekdays are less busy than weekends
- We are all in this together, so kindly remind others of the guidelines and find a different activity if the equipment gets too crowded.
We cannot allow fitness equipment to be places where COVID-19 is spread, so we need folks to use these spaces safely.
