County parks a breath of fresh air but use safely

The Kitsap County Parks Department understands the vital role parks and open space play in helping our community get through this trying time but urges the public to take precautions to prevent the further spread of COVID-19.

Staff are working to ensure everyone has clean and usable parks to enjoy and will continue to monitor and clear trash as needed.

  • Please practice social distancing while in the parks and on trails, stay six from one another and do not gather in groups.
  • Playgrounds and play equipment are not wiped down, cleaned, or disinfected so please be safe when using these active recreation areas. Bring your own wipes and hand sanitizer to protect children. The Center for Disease Control offers tips for parents and caregivers on how to keep kids healthy while school is out. Follow this link for more information: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/prepare/children.html .
  • The Kitsap County Parks Department office is closed to public access, for the safety of staff and the public. Contact the office by phone or email at (360) 337-5350 or parks@co.kitsap.wa.us. Parks staff will make every effort to respond to inquiries in a timely manner, however, a delayed response could be experienced due to limited staff availability.
