Mayor Gregerson to Reopen Some Mukilteo Parks May 5

Beginning May 5, some public parks in Mukilteo will begin to reopen.

Lighthouse Park – allowed activities include walking, running and boating in household groups. Parking areas will be open. Restrooms will be open 7am-7pm. The Boat Launch will be open, and the docks will be reinstalled at the next low tide opportunity in the coming weeks, weather dependent.

92nd Street Park, Tails and Trails Dog Park and Edgewater Beach: Parking areas will be open, but restrooms remain closed. City staffing is not sufficient to ensure frequent cleaning of these spaces. Port-a-potties will be open, and are cleaned weekly by the vendor.

Playgrounds are not yet open.

Here are some Guidelines for Park Users:

  • Benches and picnic tables can be used to sit, but we do not recommend picnicking and eating outdoors.
  • Avoid crowds. Be prepared to go somewhere else or come back another time if the park looks crowded.
  • Physical distancing is required. Keep six feet between individuals outside your immediate household. At trailheads, on trails, and in parks, practice extra care.
  • Gatherings are not permitted. Only members of the same household may travel and recreate together. Only members of the same household should travel in cars and boats together.
  • Launch one boat at a time to give others enough space to launch safely. Leave at least one parking space between your vehicle and the vehicle next to you. Trailer your boat in the same way.
  • Users should wash their hands often.
  • Pack out what you pack in. Take any garbage with you, including disposable gloves and masks.
  • Users are advised to bring hand sanitizer as well as facial coverings to shield their noses and mouths.

We expect park visitors to accept personal responsibility for their behavior and safety.

Paid parking and boat launch fees are in effect. Residents may continue to use their existing parking passes until new passes are mailed to them.
