Sport Courts, Skatepark, and Playgrounds Closed in Snoqualmie

Snoqualmie Mayor Matt Larson has ordered closure of the Snoqualmie Skatepark and sport courts throughout the city to prevent large groups from congregating at those locations. This measure is to safeguard public health as COVID-19 continues to spread in the region and globally.

Snoqualmie parks will remain open at this time but are subject to closure if the practice of social distancing does not improve.

We ask parents to strongly urge their children and teenagers to stay home so that the virus can be contained. In addition to putting themselves at risk, they can be carriers without showing symptoms and could pass it onto vulnerable populations such as the elderly and those with underlying health problems.

Park restrooms in Snoqualmie will remain open for accessibility and to prevent people from using other areas of the parks for nonhygienic purposes. However, parks crews will not be cleaning or disinfecting restrooms due to a shortage of safety supplies that are being diverted to healthcare services and first responders.
