As of today, May 5, over 100 state parks have been reopened for daytime use in Washington, as part of phase one of Inslee's four-phase reopening plan for the state. That's good news, but don't get too excited: Parking will be limited at some popular parks in order to limit capacity, and the parks agency is encouraging people to only visit nearby parks and bring hand-washing supplies. You should also, of course, maintain a social distance of at least six feet when you're there, and be mindful of other park users—please, please don't crowd the parks. With all that in mind, we've compiled a list below of the Seattle/Tacoma-area parks that are now reopen for visiting. Given our audience, we've limited our list to parks that are within 90 minutes of Seattle by car, so you can limit your travel radius and stay as close to home as possible.
