Community centers, parks facilities to close temporarily; events suspended
We are currently in Phase 2 of the governor’s re-opening plan. Parks and trails are open, although playgrounds are closed. The Bellevue Golf Course, Robinswood Tennis Center and Bellevue Aquatic Center are open for limited use. Community centers and other recreation facilities remain closed. We continue to work toward re-opening facilities and re-starting programming when phased in by the state’s Safe Start plan.
Crossroads Community Center serves as an international welcoming place for all to build valuable relationships and bridge cultures and generations. The Center provides a variety of programs for recreation, education, theater and the arts, health/wellness, community involvement, human and social services, and diversity engagement. Crossroads Community Center partners frequently with local businesses, nonprofits and other organizations to support youth and families within the community.

Inclement Weather Plan
Call 425-452-7854 before travelling to Crossroads Community Center to ensure the facility is open.
In the event of inclement weather, the Parks & Community Services Department will make every effort to communicate the status of facilities and programs, special events and rentals. Administration will decide whether to cancel a program or close a facility based upon the safety of participants and employees and the ability to appropriately staff programs and facilities.
As a general rule, if the Bellevue School District is closed due to a weather event, Parks & Community Services Department classes and programs will be cancelled for the entire day. If the Bellevue School District is on a delayed schedule, call the facility for an updated status report. Select facilities may be open for drop-in activities at a modified level. If you are unable to reach the facility, call the Parks & Community Services Department's general information number at 425-452-6885. Inclement weather can affect park use and trail conditions. Please use caution when visiting park sites during poor weather, as trails and other park facilities may become wet and slippery. Park trails may be closed.
