Parks & Rec furlough days this Friday & Monday



Frequent Parks & Recreation furlough days are not uncommon to Seattleites these days–in 2010 city employees will be taking ten days off, many of which fall on Fridays and Mondays, without pay to help fill the budget gap. The next round of furloughs are coming up this Friday, May 7 and Monday, May 10, when many Parks & Recreation facilities will be closed.

These facilities and services will be closed on Friday, May 7:

  • Grounds maintenance
  • Community centers (except child care and late night programs, which will still operate).
  • Swimming pools
  • Environmental Learning Centers
  • Lifelong Recreation (except Food and Fitness programs, which will still operate)
  • Business Service Center

These facilities and services will be closed on Monday, May 10:

  • Administrative offices (communications, correspondence, Park Board support, web management, public outreach, human resources, finance and administration)
  • Planning and Development Division
  • Magnuson Park office

Other furloughs you should know about: Citywide Youth Violence Prevention Initiative sites, also known as Extended Hours Program sites, are closed today, Wednesday, May 5.

Other sites/facilities, including golf courses, special events, the Amy Yee Tennis Center and the Seattle Aquarium will be assigning furlough dates individually to ensure that they stay open to the public and that any 24-hour animal care needs are met.
