Inclement Weather Plan: Call 425-452-4106 before travelling to Northwest Arts Center to ensure the facility is open.

In the event of inclement weather, the Parks & Community Services Department will make every effort to clearly communicate the status of facilities and programs, scheduled special events and rentals.  Administration will make an operational decision based upon the safety of participants and employees, and the ability to appropriately staff programs and facilities.

As a general rule, if the Bellevue School District is closed due to a weather event, all Parks & Community Services Department classes and programs will be cancelled for the entire day. If the Bellevue School District is on a delayed schedule, call the facility for an updated status report.  Select facilities may be open for drop-in activities at a modified level.  If you are unable to reach the facility, call the Parks & Community Services Department’s general information number at 425-452-6885.

Inclement weather can affect park use and trail conditions.  Please use caution when visiting park sites during poor weather, as trails and other park facilities may become wet and slippery.  Park trails may be closed.
