COVID-19 Parks Response

UPDATE 04/13/2020, 2:32 pm

What we’re doing 

The health and safety of our community is our top concern, and we are doing our part to help contain the spread of this COVID-19. We are making daily assessments based on Public Health’s guidance, and we will do our best to communicate any changes in our operations as quickly as possible. In accordance with guidance from Snohomish County Public Health and the Washington Department of Health regarding COVID-19, these steps are being taken to better enforce social distancing and ensure all appropriate steps are being taken to prevent the spread of COVID-19. While Snohomish County is closing gates and bathrooms to county parks, the Snohomish Health District continues to encourage people to stay active while maintaining social distancing. The following Snohomish County Park facilities restrictions are in effect:



  • Parks:  Parks and trails remain open.  However, gates to all parks and trail heads are closed through May 4, 2020.  Rule of thumb:  If you need the car, the park's too far.  Citations will be issued for blocking gates and/or improperly parked vehicles.
  • Boat Launches: Due to all park gates being closed, boat launches will be inaccessible through May 4, 2020.
  • Restrooms:  Closed through May 4, 2020. 
  • Playgrounds:  Playgrounds/playground structures are closed through May 4, 2020.
  • Picnic Shelters: All facility reservations cancelled through May 4, 2020.

  • Yurts & Vacation Home:  Kayak Point/River Meadows Parks.   All facility reservations cancelled through May 4, 2020.
      Full refunds will be issued.  No new reservations accepted through May 4, 2020.
