Play Safe, Stay Safe Redmond

Service Alert

Beginning July 1, 2021, the City of Redmond is now open in a limited capacity. Due to the pandemic, the City of Redmond experienced budget reductions that impacted the Parks & Recreation Department. Staffing levels are still reduced due to these reductions, limiting the capacity for programs and services.

The City of Redmond continues to value health, safety, and service to the community during the COVID-19 pandemic. With the continued rise of cases, recreation programming will be available in virtual and outdoor settings through the Fall 2021 season.
