Island Rec | San Juan Island Park and Recreation District, Friday Harbor

An update from the Island Rec board

April 7, 2020: All Island Rec in-person programs for April and May remain cancelled in order to prevent community spread of COVID-19. Have you tried one of our adult fitness LIVE Zoom classes with Jacquelyn Reiff or Katerina Wen? It is a great way to stay moving while staying at home. The following special events are also cancelled for May:

May 2—Children’s Festival
May 9—Pickleball Tournament
May 9—Mother’s Day Yellow Island Kayak Trip
May 10—3v3 Soccer Tournament
May 17—Hill of Thrills Soap Box Race
May 31- Tour de Family

Summer Programs: Island Rec’s recreation and administrative staff continue to work remotely on an optimistic plan for summer programs, with the knowledge that we may have to push some programs to a later date, or adapt to a different type of summer this year. Instead of opening summer program registration on May 1st, we are tentatively planning to open registration on June 1st. Like you, we are waiting to see what the summer will hold and will keep the community informed as our plans unfold. Our primary focus will always be participant safety.

Parks: Our parks maintenance team has been diligently continuing to maintain our parks with safety precautions in place. Lafarge Open Space, Eddie & Friends Dog Park, the Skate Park, and John O. Linde Community Park remain open for public use with mandatory social distancing guidelines in place. The playgrounds at the Family Park and Linde Park are closed per the San Juan County health officer’s order. Spring is an especially critical time for staff to continue maintaining the fields at Linde Park to avoid future deterioration and critical loss to the facility. This ensures that the fields will be in quality playing condition when our school sports teams and community can fully enjoy them again.

If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to Island Rec staff via their email, or leave a voicemail at 360-378-4953.

Our primary mission is to provide safe navigation to the 14,000 commercial and recreational vessels that transit the 17.5 mile waterway each year. However the 1,000 acres of land that surrounds the canal provides diverse recreational opportunities such as hiking, fishing, biking, picnicking and ship watching.

Recreation Areas

Multiple Canal access points along both sides of the Canal have been developed into Recreation Areas equipped with restrooms, picnic areas and parking lots. View our Recreation Map to locate the various recreation areas along the Canal and what is offered at each.

Midway Recreation Area is a beautiful wooded area, ideal for families, offering individual and group picnic options with charcoal grills, volleyball and more. Midway has a large picnic pavilion with grills, tables, and a fireplace that can be reserved for group functions at no cost via a Special Facility Permit request; for more information email or call Park Ranger Ann LeBlanc 978-318-8531.

Biking and Walking

13.5 miles of paved service roads line the Cape Cod Canal. Open to the public, they are great for walking, biking and in-line skating.

Service roads which parallel both sides of the Canal are available for bicycling, jogging and walking. Each service road is approximately seven-miles long. Benches are placed along the service roads for the enjoyment of our visitors. While enjoying the Canal’s service roads remember, if you pack it in, please pack it out. All developed recreation areas that offer service road access are equipped with trash receptacles

Boston MA Waterfront Hotel, Seaport District

THE ENVOY HOTEL

Preferred Seaport District Accommodations & Suites | Where To Stay In Boston

A pioneer in the newly emerging Innovation District, the 136 room, AAA Four-Diamond rated Envoy Hotel’s bold interiors and easy style are set in contrast to the city’s New England traditions, yet right at home in its wunderkind neighborhood. Rooms and suites are oriented to the water, and have a quintessentially urban view, providing a uniquely efficient and comfortable roost with carefully considered custom details, bits of surprise and pops of color. Outlook Kitchen aims to serve neighbors and guests alike—an instant favorite as much for its local fare as for its water-view vantage point and well-hewn cocktail culture. Six floors up, the scene and the smooth interface at the Lookout Rooftop is both stunning and chill, a beacon for the new frontier.

ARD Playgrounds Closed until further notice

 

ARD COVID-19 update

 

March 20, 2020 – Per the State’s stay-at-home order, ARD has greatly reduced its staffing. We will be operating with the bare minimum of staffing until at least April 10th, unless otherwise modified. Because of this, ARD has instituted the following:

 

All ARD parks are still open for use. Park users are reminded to maintain a social distance of 6 feet. Please see this article for more information.
All ARD playgrounds are closed. Playground closures will be reassessed as we receive more information from Placer County Public Health.
All ARD park bathrooms will be opened on a modified basis beginning March 21. Bathrooms will be opened between 7-8am and closed between 6-7pm. The bathrooms may be closed during the Stay-At-Home order due to new information, new orders or a lack of supplies.
All ARD community centers will be closed during the stay-at-home order.
As is standard procedure, parks and facilities may be closed after a rain event. You can find out which facilities are closed by visiting our field conditions page.

 

The changes listed are subject to change should further directives be issued or new information provided.

 

As stated above, ARD is doing everything it can to meet the stay-at-home order, and will not have park staff available to provide our standard park maintenance. You may see staff mowing or weed-eating during this time, as we need to keep up on these basic tasks or face larger problems when we return. We appreciate your cooperation during this time.
