5/1/20 - It is with profound sadness that we announce the sudden and unexpected passing yesterday of Key Pen Parks Executive Director Scott Gallacher.
Scott brought remarkable passion, energy and leadership to the park district. Our gratitude for his years of service to Key Pen Parks and the community cannot be adequately expressed.
Our thoughts and prayers are with his family during this difficult time. We ask for your understanding and compassion as we all process this great loss.
Welcome to Key Pen Parks
NOTICE: 6/26/20 - We will keep this at-a-glance park amenity closures/openings chart updated here on our website and on our Facebook page. Click the chart image to enlarge.
We understand that outdoor spaces are critical to the mental and physical health of our community, now more than ever as we face social distancing in an effort to slow the spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus).
We have opted to open the playgrounds at Gateway Park, Home Park and Volunteer Park as of June 26, 2020. The public must note, however, we are unable to effectively sanitize the playground equipment. Playground equipment is use at your own risk. Restrooms will be cleaned twice daily.
Please help us keep the playgrounds open by following these guidelines:
The gate at Maple Hollow Park will continue to remain closed. However, the public is welcome to park outside the gate and walk in to use the trails.
Our office remains closed until Pierce County reaches Phase 3 of Governor Inslee's Safe Start plan.
We'll keep our website and Facebook page current with any park or office closures, event postponements, and other park-related notices as they occur.
Please also note: We are not currently taking shelter reservations at this time.
