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 twice daily. Our office remains closed as required by Governor Inslee's Recovery Plan. Most staff is working remotely, so please reach out via email.

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.
