Park Safety

Take time to enjoy the parks all year round. Here are a few tips to make your visit more enjoyable:


• Park hours are from 6 a.m. - 10 p.m. April 1-October 31 and 6 a.m. - 8 p.m. November 1-March 31.

• The use of alcohol in parks is prohibited by city ordinance and is strictly enforced.

• Please drive safely in the parks. Watch for children and wildlife crossing the park roadways. The speed limit is 15 mph and traffic congestion can occur.

• Prevent theft by locking your vehicles. Lock valuables in the trunk or leave them at home. Do not leave your purse or wallet on or under your car seat.

• Do not leave children unattended. Parks and playgrounds can be very busy.

• Keep pets on a leash (no longer than 10 feet) and in your control at all times. (See off-leash pet areas). Pets are not allowed at Thornton Sullivan Park at Silver Lake.

• Please do not feed ducks, geese, squirrels and other small creatures. Doing so trains wildlife to rely on humans for support and to give up their natural food sources.

• Large recreation equipment such as a dunk tank, moon walk/bounce house, miniature trains, etc. are not permitted in any Everett park.
