An apparent workplace shooting last week at a Seattle Parks facility near Green Lake sent the entire Parks system into lockdown as police searched for suspect Carolyn “Zoom” Piksa.
This afternoon, the Parks Department is closing community centers and other facilities across the city for a couple hours to give employees an opportunity to meet and talk about the incident that left a fellow Parks employee with serious injuries.
Seattle Parks and Recreation will close all recreational facilities March 13 from 12:30 to 2:30 so that Parks employees can meet with their leaders and talk to Parks management about the shooting that took place at Parks’ Densmore Ave. N facility on Friday, March 8.
This meeting will give the recreation staff time with their management team and with counselors. Affected facilities are community centers, pools, environmental learning centers and the Amy Yee Tennis Center.
