Play Safe, Stay Safe Redmond
Beginning July 1, 2021, the City of Redmond is now open in a limited capacity. The City’s opening plan is based on Governor Inslee’s Washington Ready plan. 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. Redmond Parks & Recreation will continue to increase offerings throughout the summer and into the fall. To learn more about recreation opportunities in Redmond this summer, visit Summers in Redmond.
