Trails located within City of Puyallup Parks and the Riverwalk Trail will reopen to the public Saturday, April 25.

All other park amenities remain closed. This includes playground equipment, sports courts (tennis, basketball, pickleball), baseball fields, dog parks, picnic shelters and the skate park. Only trails may be used.

Pioneer Park, Grayland Park and the Puyallup Valley Sports Complex remain closed for all uses.

Outdoor restrooms are closed. Parking lots are also closed. Utilize trails close to your home, instead of traveling to them. If you have to take a car, the park is too far. If you encounter others, maintain a minimum of six feet distance.

Trail users should adhere to the following health guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention:

DO:
• Only utilize trails that are close to your home.
• Leave no trace—pack out what you bring in.
• Go to the bathroom before you leave your house, and carry hand sanitizer.
• Wash your hands with soap and water when you return home.
• Practice social distancing: Stay at least six feet from others at all times. Do not go into a crowded area. Bring/wear a mask to cover your nose and mouth if social distancing is not achievable.
• Avoid gathering with others outside of your household.

DON’T:
• Visit trails if you are sick or were recently exposed to COVID-19.
• Visit crowded trails: If you can’t safely stay 6 feet away from others, come back when trail is less busy.
• Use park amenities such as playgrounds, dog parks, sport courts or picnic shelters – these remain off-limits.
• Participate in organized or informal group activities or sports.
