The Department of Parks and Recreation has another furlough day tomorrow (Friday May 7th) and next Monday. Staff will be taking the day without pay to help fill the budget gap.
Among the facilities and services that will be closed on Friday include community centers (except child care and late night programs, which will still operate), swimming pools, environmental learning centers, lifelong recreation (except food and fitness programs) and the business service center. On Monday, administrative offices will be closed.
Other sites/facilities, including golf courses, special events, the Amy Yee Tennis Center and the Seattle Aquarium will be assigning furlough dates individually to employees to ensure that they stay open to the public.
