More amenities open at Carrie Blake Park

SEQUIM — Carrie Blake Community Park in Sequim has opened four of its eight pickleball courts, as well as bocce ball and shuffleboard courts, plus the horseshoe pits and the softball fields.

The additional amenities were made available Monday as Clallam County moved into Phase 2 of Gov. Jay Inslee’s Safe Start program.

The park at 202 N. Blake Ave. had partially reopened May 5, allowing the public into the Water Reuse Demonstration Area, dog park, skate park, fishing pond and community gardens.

The other four pickleball courts will reopen when the county moves into Phase 3, city officials said.

The softball fields are open for practice with five people or less. No games or tournaments are allowed.

Park Hosts Jim and Laurajean Fearn will be at Carrie Blake Park through Oct. 31. They are located on the south side of the Shiso Sister City Friendship Garden.
