Meadowbrook, Alicia Park, Matthews Beach, Thornton Creek

Today, my husband and I walked most of the streets between NE 95 and NE 105th Streets and between 40th Avenue NE and Sand Point Way NE. There were a lot of dead end streets so we wound up walking some street 2 or 3 times and walked a total of 5.4 miles.

Thornton Creek runs diagonally through this neighborhood and seems to turn up all over the place. Parts of the neighborhood has tall trees and the curb appeal varies by street. Any street with few cars is more appealing. Some streets have sidewalks, curbs and underground utilities. Some don't have underground utilities and some don't have sidewalks or curbs. The drainage varies from street to street as does the number of potholes. On the whole, it's a quiet, residential neighborhood with home prices in about the middle range of neighborhoods, I have walked thus far.

On 105th Street, we passed a playfield which abuts John Rogers elementary school. The neighborhood is moderately hilly and looks almost suburban with fair sized lots. We passed a house with a full-sized tennis court in its backyard and another with Thornton Creek running underneath. We met a few dog walkers and a few pedestrians.
