Out of an abundance of caution and to help minimize the spread of COVID-19 in the community, the City of Everett is cancelling all Parks & Community Services programs and events through March 31. These cancellations include all Parks events, classes, trips and preschool. Everett Parks and Community Services will issue full refunds to registered participants.
Additionally, the Forest Park Swim Center will close at 1:30 p.m. on Friday, March 6 and remain closed through March 31. On March 4, the Carl Gipson Senior Center closed temporarily until further notice to protect the health of those who face the highest risk of COVID-19 illness. In the coming weeks, Parks will evaluate re-opening the swim center and Parks programs after March 31.
The risk to most members of our community remains low. However, for the safety of more vulnerable demographics, the City of Everett is taking extra steps to minimize potential exposure to the COVID-19 virus and help slow its spread in the community. These closures and cancellations align with recent recommendations from the Snohomish Health District to help slow the spread of COVID-19 in the community, advising social distancing and avoiding gathering in areas with large groups.
For questions about the programming, events or refunds, or to register for classes that take place after March 31, please contact the Recreation Office during business hours (Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.) at 425-257-8300 ext. 2 or email@example.com. Online registration will not be available in March.
