Fairmount Park West Seattle
I saw a little bit of everything on today's 7.2 mile walk through the Fairmount Park neighborhood of West Seattle.
Closer to the junction of California and Alaska, there were supermarkets, large apartment complexes, restaurants and shops.
West Seattle Stadium, West Seattle Golf Course (pictured above)
and retirement homes, including Merrill Gardens and Providence Mount Saint Vincent.
The western portion of my walk had single family homes and quiet streets.
Alki Masonic Hall,
Veterans of Foreign Wars,
and the American Legion Post Number 160 with its cannon
West Seattle Family Y.
It seemed as if every vacant lot had a proposed land use action sign to build a large apartment complex.
Fairmount Playground (and I could see the closed but planned-to-be-reopened Fairmount Park Elementary School in the distance),
Fire Station Number 32,
a mural on the side of a building on Fauntleroy Way,
West Seattle Produce Company (next to a furniture consignment shop),
Rotary Viewpoint on 35th
