PSE Customer Communications Manager Jarrett Tomalin, “While the park will be open, the restrooms and lower boardwalk will remain closed.”
PSE closed the park on March 25th over COVID-19 social distancing concerns. At the time PSE said the decision was made in “an abundance of caution and concern for the safety and well-being of our customers and employees.”
Many state parks and state-managed outdoor recreations areas reopened on May 5th.
Social distancing measures and safety precautions are still required by visitors to parks and trails.
Puget Sound Energy operates and maintains busy Snoqualmie Falls Park, which is also home to its hydroelectric power plant and is adjacent the Salish Lodge and Spa. Approximately 1.5 million people visit the park each year to view iconic Snoqualmie Falls.
