From the PI.Com:

A federal judge has ruled Seattle's ban on carrying firearms in city parks and community centers is constitutional.

However, city officials said guns are not banned in Seattle parks.

Last month, a King County Superior Court judge ruled the gun ban is in direct violation of Washington state's firearm pre-emption law.

“You still can bring your gun to the parks,” Parks Department spokeswoman Joelle Hammerstad said. “The U.S. District Court judge was only dealing with the constitutional issue, not the state issue and the state ruling still stands.”
