EVERETT — Pump up the roundball and restring the rackets.
As part of the city’s reopening of parks, people can use basketball, pickleball and tennis courts. But players still must adhere to distancing rules, so don’t posse up for five-on-five or shake hands after a match.
Everett has tennis courts at American Legion Memorial, and at Clark, Edgewater, Forest, Garfield, Howarth and Lowell parks. Not all of them are up to snuff, however, and the Forest and Legion park courts were set for major work this year.
Garfield Park has Everett’s only designated pickleball court so far.
Ball fields, bathrooms, playgrounds, off-leash dog areas and skate parks remain closed.
Visitors are asked to pack out any garbage they bring with them, as fewer city staff are available to clean parks and trash bins.
