The melted snow fully exposed the damage at Snoqualmie Point Park and Centennial Fields. Vehicles crossed into the pedestrian-only area at Snoqualmie Point Park, 37580 SE Winery Road, and tore up the grassy area popular for summer weddings. Vehicles also traversed the playing fields at award-winning Centennial Fields, 39903 SE Park Street. The park is heavily used by local sports leagues from early spring through late fall for soccer, baseball and football.
Driving on snow-covered fields may seem like harmless fun, but can cause considerable damage. The Snoqualmie Parks & Recreation Department will assess the damage and repair the fields in spring. The damaged grass will most likely need re-seeding at that time. Until the damaged grass is back to normal, these areas of both parks will be off-limits to patrons.
The City of Snoqualmie asks that if you see someone driving on an athletic field or sport court, or otherwise vandalizing park property, please call 9-1-1. Please provide a vehicle license plate number or a description of the vehicle (including make, model and color) if possible.
