Team sports activities and COVID-19 guidance

City of Shoreline parks, athletic fields, tennis courts, and picnic shelters are currently available to the public for drop-in use under the social distancing guidelines of Phase II of Washington’s Safe Start Plan.

Over the last couple of weeks, the Governor’s Office has been updating regulations related to team sport activities. 

They have categorized different sport activities into different risk levels and are basing the level of activity that can occur in a county on specific COVID measurements of cases per 100,000 over the previous two weeks and positive case rates. 

The State Department of Health will review these metrics on the 1st and 15th of the month and, if necessary, issue new guidance based on them. This means what sports are allowed on the fields may shift regularly.

Tournaments, league games, and organized team practices / training are only allowed with a City of Shoreline permit. 
Failure of individuals, leagues, or other organizations to comply with the COVID-19 guidance issued by the State and Public Health – Seattle and King County could result in the closure of athletic fields, tennis courts, picnic shelters, and other park areas to the public.

Renovations to Shoreline Soccer Field B

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, King County health officials worked closely with City staff to place an Assessment / Recovery Center (ARC) on Shoreline B Soccer Field at Shoreline Park. The ARC has been removed.

As part of the interlocal agreement for the placement of the ARC, King County is required to restore the field to its original or better condition. To meet this requirement King County will be working with Field Turf, the City, and the Shoreline School District to coordinate the replacement of the existing field.

Renovations to the synthetic turf at Shoreline B Soccer Field at Shoreline Park is scheduled to begin on Monday, October 26. Field repair and replacement is estimated to be completed by February 2021.

If you have any questions on this project you can contact Parks, Fleet and Facilities Manager Dan Johnson at or 206-801-2321.
