Dreading dark December? Seattle Parks programs might help

The darkest month of the year is almost here, with the earliest sunsets and shortest days, and – this year – COVID-canceled festivities. But Seattle Parks & Recreation has a plan to brighten some of those days.

It’s out with a brochure for virtual programs in December – from a free “family fun night” to classes and workouts (here are a few examples). You can browse the brochure here. The registration portal is here.

The department also has view-any-time videos on YouTube – cooking, books, sports skills to name a few. (And if you’re looking for info on Parks facilities, the ongoing open-and-closed list is here.)

    Um, what program do I sign up for so I can snuggle with adorable bunnies? That would definitely get me through the rest of this year.

    Fixing the burnt out light fixtures serving the track at Hiawatha play field would be a great start.  It’s moot when the turf lights are on but on nights they are off it is very dark along portions of the track
