Spokane Parks and Rec. now limiting park capacity at Liberty Lake Park to slow COVID-19 spread

LIBERTY LAKE, Wash. — If you plan on enjoying the sun at Liberty Lake Park, make sure you get there early.

Spokane County Parks and Recreation is limiting the amount of people who can visit the park, in order to slow the spread of COVID-19. 

The decision was made Thursday based on talks with Spokane Regional Health District.

Parks and Rec. says the location is popular because of its beach access. 

In fact, it reached capacity by 11:30 on Saturday, as people flocked to the beach to enjoy the warm weather. 

Park officials say there is no set number on capacity, but they will no longer allow cars to park in the overflow area. Instead, they will consider the park full when its two main parking lots reach capacity. 

The park runs on a first come, first served basis, but you can make a reservation for camping. Learn more HERE
