City of Bellevue Adjusted Parks and Trails Regulations

During this unprecedented time of COVID-19, the City of Bellevue Parks and Recreation Department continues to take measures to slow the spread of the virus.  All of the City's indoor recreation facilities remain closed and organized activities such as baseball, softball, tennis, sports club and track club have a delayed registration period of April 13th, 2020.  We will continue to monitor metro developments and adjust accordingly.  Complete information for these activities can be found at

Our city parks and trails will remain open and we stress that social distancing is required for the health and safety of the public.  We understand the importance of maintaining an active and healthy lifestyle and ask everyone to do so responsibly. 

We continue to plan for our departments summer programs and openings of our outdoor aquatic facilities in June.  Again, this decision is being monitored daily and adjusted accordingly based on local and national events.

Park and Trail users Must follow the CDC’s guidelines:

  • Do Not use parks or trails if you are exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19.
  • Follow personal hygiene guidance prior to and after visiting the park/trail.
  • Observe the social distance of the recommended six (6) feet from others.
  • Stay within the ten (10) person limit for gatherings.

Playground, benches and all outdoor equipment cannot be sanitized on a regular basis and it is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED that you avoid contact with this equipment.  The city has over 40 parks and playgrounds which makes it impossible to sanitize and patrol. 

  • Water at Parks will not be turned on as previously scheduled.
  • Public Restrooms will be closed.
  • Porta-Potties will not be available.

The City of Bellevue appreciates your cooperation during these unprecedented times!
