• Nature and Environment

    Visitor Centers are closed.  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.

    As a "city in a park," Bellevue offers the community many nature-oriented experiences and resources. Take a walk on a trail, visit one of Bellevue's farm stands or, when we reopen, stop by a visitor center and talk with a park ranger!

    Kids can earn a Junior Ranger Badge! 
    Are you looking for a fun and engaging way to inspire your children to connect with nature?  Stop by the Mercer Slough Environmental Education Center, Lake Hills Greenbelt Ranger Station, or Lewis Creek Park Visitor Center to pick up our Junior Ranger booklet, or view the booklet online.  There are more than 15 activities you and your child can do together to explore and learn about Bellevue's natural areas.  Once you have completed the activities, return the booklet to any of the three locations and receive your very own Junior Ranger Badge.
