Seattle’s Cal Anderson Park spotted with physical distancing dots (PHOTOS)

Following the lead of cities like New York City and Toronto, Seattle’s Cal Anderson Park now has physical distancing circles of its own.

After letting the grass on the lower lawn grow out for a few weeks, City staff has mowed circles that indicate areas where groups and families can hang out. If the circles are empty, you are free to occupy them.

The spaces allow enough room for individuals to stretch out and lie down should they choose to suntan, exercise, or have a picnic.

Many users have taken to social media with photos of the circles at the park. Judging by comments on social media, the reaction to the implementation has been positive.

As temperatures steadily increase and people become more motivated to venture outside, solutions such as these present a favorable temporary compromise that will hopefully assist in public areas returning to a state of normalcy.
