City Response to COVID-19

City of Battle Ground LogoThe City of Battle Ground first responded to the COVID-19 pandemic on March 13, 2020.  Throughout the rapidly changing situation, our priority remains the same – to continue service to residents and businesses by ensuring the city remains operational with appropriate measures in place to protect the health of our employees and the community.

Although city offices remain closed to the public per Washington State requirements, we continue to provide service from the field, by phone and online. Visit department pages for contact information. 

Thank you for staying informed and for following Washington State and Public Health guidance in order to limit the spread of coronavirus.

City Parks

Open areas of parks (trails and fields) have remained open for community use. Playground structures, sports courts and picnic tables reopened on June 5 with Phase 2 of the WA State Safe Start Plan. Splash pads are scheduled to open in Phase 3 and the city’s Skate Park is scheduled to open when the plan allows for as many as 50 people to gather. 

Park users should use discretion when using common-use structures such as playground equipment.  Use hand sanitizer before and after using equipment, maintain physical distancing, and avoid large gatherings.  Wash your hands frequently and stay home if you are sick.
