Today's 6.2 mile walk in the South Delridge and Roxhill neighborhoods was nowhere near as hilly as yesterday's Gatewood walk and the views were not as spectacular as I walked streets north of SW Thistle Street and west of Delridge Way SW.
Chief Sealth International High School,
Denny International Middle School
Southwest Pool / Teen Life Center / Neighborhood Services Center dominate this area.
On the south side of Thistle, I spotted all kinds of sports fields and even got a glimpse of Mount Rainier.
Longfellow Creek Greenspace is on the north side of Thistle and this appears to be very close to the location of the P-patch mentioned by a friendly dog-walker I met on a prior walk. The city's website says it is on the south side of Thistle at 25th.
Southwest Precinct Seattle Police Station,
Vietnamese Cultural Center,
Greater Seattle Filipino American Church, Navos Mental Health Solutions
and signs welcoming me to the Westwood Neighborhood and the Longfellow Creek Watershed.
Looking for information about the Westwood neighborhood and discovered that the Seattle Housing Authority has worked to revitalize the area. I also learned that Longfellow Creek Watershed drains almost 3,000 acres in west Seattle.
as well as homes on generously sized lots with lovely gardens
and some amazing trees (one supporting three swings).
