[ARCHIVED] NEW Park Facility Closures

Facility Closures

Monday, March 23, 2020  Monroe, WA -

Today, City of Monroe Mayor Geoffrey Thomas announced the closure of all City of Monroe park restrooms, parking lots, sports courts, athletic fields, picnic shelters, skate park and Wiggly Field dog park in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.  Play structures in parks were closed last week.  These steps are being taken to better enforce social distancing and ensure all appropriate steps are being taken to slow the spread of COVID-19.  All park facility and special event applications for scheduled events through April 30 are cancelled.  Reservations beyond April 30 will continue to be accepted under the condition that they may be subject to cancellation. 

While the City of Monroe is closing restrooms, parking lots and active use facilities to city parks, the Snohomish Health District continues to encourage people to stay active and enjoy passive recreation uses at our parks and trails, while maintaining social distancing.  Examples of passive activities include: walks, jogs, bicycling in groups of 10 or less, while maintaining social distancing from others.  Please be safe.

The City of Monroe will continue to monitor the situation and will take further steps as necessary including consideration of reversing actions when public health orders are rescinded.

Parks staff will post signage at all park sites over the next 24 hours.
