To help minimize the spread of the 2019 Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19), the City of Sequim has closed the following City parks to the public to enforce Washington State Governor Jay Inslee’s order banning all gatherings for social, spiritual and recreational purposes, effective immediately:

•    Carrie Blake Park

•    Margaret Kirner Park

•    Pioneer Memorial Park

•    Dr. Standard Park

This includes all structures, fields, benches, picnic shelters, playground equipment, and dog parks.  The Olympic Discovery Trail and June Robinson Memorial Park will remain open for walking and biking the trail and for gardening respectively.  Please keep yourself and the community safe by practicing social distancing.

Jay Inslee’s “Stay Home, Stay Healthy,” order says, “We encourage you to continue to stay active and go for walks, ride your bike or garden in your yards as long as you maintain social distancing of up to six feet from others at all times while you are out and about.” 

As stated above, this order is effective immediately and enforceable by law.  For the sake of our community and those around us we ask that you please follow these new policies and take them seriously. “The less time we spend in public, the more lives we will save,” Governor Jay Inslee. 

Please contact the City of Sequim at (360) 683-4908 with questions.
