Some Parks Facilities Closed Due To Furloughs

Many Seattle Parks and Recreation facilities will be closed today, Friday, September 10, and again Monday, September 13, for a furlough day.

City of Seattle employees are taking 10 days off without pay in 2010 to help fill the budget gap. Seattle Parks and Recreation has worked hard to schedule furlough days in a way that has the smallest possible impact on customers, and that provides as much coverage as possible.

  • Grounds maintenance
  • Community centers (except child care and late night programs, which will still operate).
  • Swimming pools
  • Environmental Learning Centers, including Camp Long
  • Lifelong Recreation (except Food and Fitness programs, which will still operate)
  • Business Service Center

These facilities and services will be closed on Monday, September 13:

  • Administrative offices (communications, correspondence, Park Board support, web management, public outreach, human resources, finance and administration)
  • Planning and Development Division
  • Magnuson Park office

These facilities will operate normally:
