Jefferson County Parks and Recreation would like to remind the community that fireworks are illegal in Jefferson County Parks such as Oak Bay Campground, Hicks Park in Shine, Indian Island Park, East Beach, North Beach, HJ Carroll, and Irondale Community park among others. “Fireworks have been illegal, and remain illegal in all Jefferson County Parks. This is nothing new. It is simply not safe for people or the environment." said parks and recreation manager Matt Tyler. “There have been injuries, fires, and the plastic and trash from the fireworks is impossible to clean up. Fireworks are definitely illegal at all areas of Irondale Beach Park and on the neighboring Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife Property.” All Jefferson County Parks are clearly marked and have no-fireworks signs. “We appreciate the cooperation and assistance of the community as we strive to keep our county parks safe and the water and environment clean.", concluded Tyler.
