Spokane Parks and Rec outlines what you can and can’t do outside in phase 2

SPOKANE, Wash. — As the weather gets warmer, Spokane Parks and Recreation has outlined what is and isn’t allowed outside in phase 2. 

Safety requirements outlined by Governor Inslee say gatherings of five or less are allowed outside your household. 

That means you can play games at local parks, disc golf courses, or on sport courts, as long as you make sure to social distance. 

Use of skate parks with less than five people is also allowed, according to Parks and Rec., as well as picnics.

Parks and Rec. said the majority of Riverfront Park attractions will return during later phases when larger gatherings are allowed. 

Though there is still no set date, Parks and Rec. says public pools will reopen with limited capacity in phase 3. When that happens, you’ll be asked to wear a mask when not in the water.

Playgrounds will remain closed until the Spokane Regional Health District deems it safe for them to reopen. 

Parks and Rec. says public restrooms will also remain closed until further notice, and is asking people to “go before you go.” There are, however, portable restrooms that can be used at more popular outdoor destinations. 

All Riverfront events and activities have been canceled or postponed through at least the end of June. Parks and Rec. says it’s tentatively holding scheduled events for July, but that is subject to change.
