• Parks programs, events canceled through June

    As the city monitors Washington’s phased approach to reopening, it is extending its cancellation of parks programs, events and rentals of picnic shelters, ballfields and other park facilities through the end of June.

    All of the city’s community centers remain closed until further notice.

    The Bellevue Golf Course and Crossroads Par 3 Golf Course reopened earlier this month, with some social distancing restrictions in place. 

    Bellevue parks and trails are also open. Some amenities – including playgrounds, ballfields, sports courts and picnic areas – are still closed. The pier at Meydenbauer Bay Park is also closed to prevent crowding.

    Downtown Park is open, but residents are reminded that the parking lots at the park are closed, with the exception of accessible parking spots in the southern lot. 

    Park rangers are patrolling parks daily throughout the city, with an emphasis on the most popular gathering places. Rangers will educate park visitors and explain the importance of social distancing to reduce the spread of COVID-19.
