Fairmount Park Neighborhood of West Seattle
Today's 8.8 mile walk through streets southwest of West Seattle Golf Course covered a good part of West Seattle's Fairmount Park Neighborhood.
Providence Mount Saint Vincent and West Seattle Golf Course (both pictured in a prior post) are on its northern end. Camp Long is just south of the golf course; it has an environmental learning center, a native plant interpretive garden, cabins, picnicking, trails, a climbing rock and a hub and spoke ropes challenge course. I will return to explore more fully.
High Point Branch of the Seattle Public Library. (It is not open on Fridays so I couldn't scope out the inside but it looked bright and airy.)
Longfellow Creek, a Dragonfly Pavilion, Roxhill Park/Bog and Viewpoint Park Pond - looks as if I'm in for another good walk nearby.
High Point Medical Dental Clinic and south of that, new homes are under construction.
Car Wash Palace, a Walgreen's and the West Seattle Food Bank.
Fairmount Park Elementary which is expanding, quiet streets,
Along the way, I spotted all kinds of landscaping including lots of lavender attracting bees,
Free Range Mercantile bus,
Water Taxi Shuttle stop, a sign to free Bradley Manning,
