Park Rangers

Mission Statement

To enhance the real and perceived safety and quality of life in our city parks through a uniformed presence, to provide respectful and professional assistance to all park users, and to ensure compliance with laws and the Parks Code through education and enforcement.

About Us

The Park Rangers actively support the Center City Parks Concierges and Seattle Parks activation programs. The primary function of park rangers is to educate and assist park users and to seek voluntary compliance with laws and Park Code SMC 18.12. They can issue warnings, citations and parks trespass warnings.  They can be called on to address repeated Park Code violations or minor infractions, and will respond when available.

The Park Rangers are a valuable resource for our parks. They provide a strong, positive but authoritative presence in our parks.  They have limited authority and are not sworn law enforcement officers. Call 9-1-1 for Police or Fire response when there is a public safety emergency.
