[ARCHIVED] Ballinger Boat Launch and Fishing Pier Reopening May 5

Ballinger Fishing Dock

In follow up to the Governor’s April 27 press conference regarding reopening of statewide activities in a safe and gradual manner, the City of Mountlake Terrace will reopen its boat launch and fishing pier at Ballinger Park effective Tuesday, May 5, 2020.

The reopening of fishing activities is conditional upon social distancing and new signage will be made and placed in city parks and on trails. Passive parks, trails and disc golf remain open also conditioned upon social distancing. It’s important to note that City of Mountlake Terrace playgrounds, restrooms, playfields and the off leash dog park remain closed until further notice.

“As a reminder when visiting our passive parks and trails, please do not gather in groups and remain six feet away from other people,” remarked Recreation and Parks Director Jeff Betz.

Until the Governor announces any other changes, the status of city services and programs remains the same until further notice.  Facility updates are listed on the city’s COVID-19 information page located at

For those seeking other recreational activities, visit and search for the city’s new channel called “Recreation Pavilion” for free dance and fitness classes.
