Parking Lots Closed at Popular Seattle Parks

Due to crowding and refusal to follow social distancing guidelines, Seattle Parks and Rec announced late this afternoon that the parking lots are now closed at several popular Seattle parks.

The parks themselves are still open, but you must be able to walk or bicycle to the park. This is an attempt to reduce the large numbers of people in the parks to avoid the spread of COVID-19.

The parks currently affected are:

Green Lake

Lincoln Park

Golden Gardens

Seward Park

Magnuson Park

Gas Works Park

Alki Beach

Discovery Park

I’m really bummed that uncaring people have ruined this for everyone with their inconsiderate actions. By closing off parking lots these parks are now completely inaccessible to everyone with mobility issues.

Magnuson and Golden Gardens are my go-to parks when I need to get out for a bit, and both parks have nice spots to just sit in your car and enjoy the view. Now we can’t even do that.

I’m surprised Carkeek isn’t on the list, so I expect this will be expanded sooner rather than later.
