More Shoreline Parks [08 Jun 2006|08:36am]

Twin Ponds Park-
This park is stupid. It says they have "Hiking", but I'm old and out of shape, and I'd walked every trail in the park in 15 minutes! It has 2 nice ponds and soccer field, so would be ok for little kids. Even in May it had so many bugs that I needed bug spray.

Shoreline Park-
This is ANOTHER park which says it has Hiking. What? Not even 1 mile worth of trails. A nice playground though, and a pool. I'll not go back to try trails.

So far I'm 1/2 way through the parks and have found only one hiking appropriate park in Shoreline, and that is Boeing Creek Park. If you know of others, please comment.

Shoreline Park Report [02 May 2006|09:59pm]

[ mood | informative ]

Hi. I have started a new goal of going to every park near my condo (I live in Shoreline). Near is defined as in a 10 mile radius. There are quite a few, so I wanted to share my opinions about the parks incase it is useful.

Boeing Creek Park is located in Shoreline. It has a very easy to follow trail down to the creek, and stepping stones to cross. I hiked most of the trails in the park in 45 minutes. It isn't crowded and besides trees and a creek there isn't much there, but I enjoyed the hike. Parking is free and I didn't encounter anyone on a bike. I did get bitten by bugs, so I suggest bug spray, and also next time I go to this park I'll come equipt to wade in the creek. I didn't see any bathrooms, but luckily I wasn't there long enough to need one.

Because of this overwhelming popularity, we are adding a second night on Thursdays. Beginning the week of Sept. 19th, we will have dodge ball in our gym on both Monday and Thursday nights from 7-9pm. It only costs $2 for each adult.

Come on down and enjoy the fun!

Funding Salmon Restoration for the Olympic Sculpture Park [14 Jul 2003|04:05pm]

I'm proud to announce that I have secured $500,000 to help restore salmon habitat along the shoreline of Olympic Sculpture Park proposed for downtown Seattle. The park will transform a polluted industrial site in the heart of downtown Seattle into a dynamic public park and art exhibition space. The near-shore habitat we restore is an important component of our all-out effort to save Pacific Northwest salmon runs.

Located just a block from the Seattle Center and Belltown, the park will provide a vibrant new green space with sweeping view of Puget Sound and the Olympic Mountains for an estimated 600,000 annual visitors. It will also create a unique outdoor venue for sculpture and public art and provide hands-on education about Washington state's natural resources. On behalf of residents of Seattle and Washington state, I would like to thank the Seattle Art Museum, the Trust for Public Land, state and local officials, Paul Allen, Jon and Mary Shirley, and all the others who have worked so hard on this project. -- cantwell.senate.gov

The Cedar River Trail follows an old railroad right-of-way from downtown Renton to King County's Landsburg Park, alongside the scenic Cedar River. A branch of the trail connects with King County's Lake Wilderness Park and continues to Four Corners. (link)
