Seattle— October 9, 2020 — We are so pleased to welcome visitors back to the Seattle Children’s PlayGarden. Over the last seven months the PlayGarden has been closely following City, County, State and Federal guidelines for parks, playgrounds and size of social gatherings. On October 5, 2020, the City of Seattle announced that parks and playgrounds are open for day use with COVID specific restrictions. To find details on the restrictions, please visit the City of Seattle’s post here.
Let’s work together together so children can play safely and happily.
Visiting the PlayGarden
Our top priority is that families stay safe and healthy during this time. Safe and healthy means each and every one of us is responsible for taking precautions against the spread of COVID-19. While at the garden, practice social distancing. According to current guidelines, all adults and children over the age of 2 must wear a mask or facial covering while visiting the garden. Please stay home if anyone in your family is experiencing COVID-19 symptoms. No more than 5 kids can be on a piece of play equipment at a time.
The PlayGarden Serves a High Risk Population
The PlayGarden’s mission is to provide children of all abilities a safe, accessible and adventurous place to play. This means that there are many children and adults who visit the PlayGarden who have serious underlying medical conditions that may increase their risk for contracting COVID-19. Please keep this in mind when deciding to come and play.
The PlayGarden is open to the public Monday-Friday 3pm-dusk and dawn to dusk on the weekends. The PlayGarden is closed for public gatherings, field trips, workshops and events with over five people, at this time.
