Q. It has recently been brought to my attention that hammock and/or slacklines are no longer allowed at Washington Park. This is a considerable issue for my family, my friends, much of the community, as well as myself. I would like to know why this is and the events that have happened for this rule to be put in place. Thank you for taking the time to respond.
A. The use of hammocks and slacklines in the city parks is prohibited.
City Ordinance 12.52.010 - Damaging vegetation.
No person (other than authorized city employees) shall damage, cut, carve, transplant or remove any tree or plant or injure the bark, or pick the flower or seeds of any tree or plant. Nor shall any such person attach any rope, wire or other contrivance to any tree or plant, dig in or otherwise disturb grass areas, or in any other way injure or impair the natural beauty or usefulness of any area in the park.
