Washougal, Wash. – March 24, 2020 – Following local and state agencies guidance and in line with Governor Inslee’s recent Stay Home, Stay Healthy announcement, the Port of Camas-Washougal is closing the Natural Play Area effective immediately until further notice to slow the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus.
The closure applies to play structures, picnic shelters and restrooms. Trails, open grass areas and greenspaces will remain open, though patrons are urged to maintain social distancing, limit group interaction and adhere to public health recommendations at all times.
We understand that spending time outdoors has many benefits so our parks and trails are still open for activities where social distancing can be maintained, such as walking, jogging, cycling and nature viewing. Please enjoy these activities alone or with your family, but do not congregate and be sure to follow social distancing guidelines.”
Port property and parks will continue to be maintained during the closure, but to a lesser extent than usual due to reduced staffing levels enacted to meet CDC recommendations for protecting citizens and employees.
The Port will continue to monitor newly released information to determine closures and cancellations going forward. For information on the status Clark County parks within Camas and Washougal, please visit https://www.clark.wa.gov/covid19.
