More amenities are open in city of Kent parks because of King County’s approval last week to move into Phase 2 of the state’s Safe Start Plan to get through the COVID-19 outbreak.
The following amenities are now open for groups less than five:
• Skate parks
• Climbing pinnacle/boulder at Arbor Heights 360
• Basketball courts
• Tennis courts
Please note that playgrounds are not sanitized.
The parks, trails, boat launches and fishing docks were reopened in Phase 1 and the modified Phase 1.5.
Residents are asked to limit stays so others can enjoy the parks as well. Please sanitize your hands before and after your visit, and continue to socially distance yourself from other park users. If social distancing is hard to maintain, please choose another park or trail to enjoy.
The restrooms at Scenic Hill Park and Mill Creek Canyon Earthworks Park will continue to be closed at this time due to maintenance and repairs. In addition, athletic complexes remain closed until further notice, unless by permit.
