Cartwright Park

The playground at Cartwright Park after reopening.

Councilor Steve Wright asked to lift emergency orders in Seaside that had closed parks and playgrounds since March. The motion at last week’s City Council meeting came after the state issued new guidance allowing playgrounds to reopen.

The council unanimously voted to lift closures.

Parks reopened last Tuesday, Public Works Director Dale McDowell said, with signs added advising how to recognize the symptoms of the new coronavirus and prevention measures. These include hand-washing, the use of face masks, social distancing of at least 6 feet apart and proper trash disposal.
