COVID-19 Reopening Info
NOTICE: 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 have opted to open the playgrounds at Gateway Park, Home Park and Volunteer Park. The public must note, however, we are unable to effectively sanitize the playground equipment. Playground equipment is use at your own risk. Restrooms are cleaned daily. Staff is in the office but it remains closed to the public per Governor Inslee's Healthy Washington Plan.
Zip lines at Gateway Park Playground: The zip lines remain closed due to sanitization and social distancing requirements. We hope to be able to open them in the summer. There are rumors that Key Pen Parks is taking reservations for them -- however this is not true.
Please help us keep the playgrounds open by following these guidelines:
Splash Pad: Will be open in summer of 2021 in some capacity. Revised information from the Governor's office is expected shortly to help us share more information on opening. However you should anticipate reservations being required, limited capacity and no gatherings (parties). This information is changing rapidly and may be less restrictive in June or July.
Please also note: We are not currently taking shelter reservations at this time.
Volunteer Park is a free public hot spot
To assist Key Peninsula residents who may not have Internet service or have poor Internet coverage, Key Pen Parks has turned Volunteer Park into a free Wi-Fi access area. This free Wi-Fi is thanks to the Pierce County Connected program with the Greater Tacoma Community Foundation. Best access to this public Wi-Fi is from the parking lot closest to the buildings. The Wi-Fi (KeyPenn Parks Guest) needs no password and is available daily for public use from 7 am to dusk.
