Gene Coulon Memorial Beach Park will be open on Sunday, July 4, for modified day use from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Ivar’s and Kidd Valley restaurants will be open until 6:30 p.m.

The park’s picnic shelters are closed but individual picnic tables are open as are the open areas of the park.

Both the south beach at Coulon and Kennydale Beach Park will have lifeguards on duty from 12:30-7 p.m. Renton police will be on patrol and Renton Regional Fire Authority water rescue will be stationed at the boat launch.

The boat launch is open around the clock. Launch permits can be purchased online or by calling 425-430-6700 and selecting option 8. Please follow the informational signage for launching and retrieving your vessel. The parking area is open only to tow vehicles with trailers and car toppers. All other vehicles may be cited.

We ask all who use the park to remember to bring hand sanitizer and continue to practice safe social distancing. Face coverings are recommended if unvaccinated.

There will be no program or fireworks display. However, we are working on scheduling the fireworks for an upcoming event.
