Events Cancelled or Postponed

We are following COVID-19 health directives from Governor Jay Inslee, Washington State Parks, and the CDC. We have CANCELLED the Spring Egg Hunt scheduled for April 11th and postponed Earth Day festivities scheduled for April 18th. Party in the Park on June 27th has not been cancelled as of March 24th.


We’re postponing this 50th Birthday Party and Stewardship event until gathering restrictions are lifted. Opportunities for group stewardship will most likely look different, even later this year. But YOU can help the plants and animals in the park on your next visit simply by bringing a small garbage bag, wearing gloves, and picking up tiny pieces of garbage (gum and candy wrappers, hair ties, etc.) that seem to sneak out of pockets along the trails. We appreciate everyone’s efforts to keep the park pristine and magical for all who visit.

If you want to be sure to hear about upcoming stewardship opportunities in the park, once we’re officially able to organize them, please email us at:


The unfortunate possibility exists that we ‘may’ need to eventually cancel our 18th annual Party in the Park event this year.  We’ll make a final call on this later this spring, however should we need to cancel, we’re already thinking how we can partially replace the event.  We’ve developed a brief online survey to see what activities people like most about Party in the Park and will use the results to guide planning for potential community events later this year. Please share your feedbackCLICK HERE.

In the same breath, we’re also asking that you consider joining local business and individual sponsors in their steadfast support of this unique community event. We remain hopeful that “the show will go on” and we can share and celebrate the unique equestrian culture of the park in our urban country fair format. Exciting 2020 additions to the entertainment include the Seattle Mounted Police and the Bubbleman.
