Broadview near Carkeek Park

Today, my husband and I returned to Broadview to walk the neighborhood near Carkeek Park. We walked the streets between the Park and 1st Avenue NW from NW 105th to 115th Street. Our 5.3 mile walk had us walking on dead end streets and a windy road which goes into the park.

This is a quiet neighborhood with lots of ravines. It is hilly near the park. A few of the streets look to be part of the Street Edge Alternative Program which really adds eye appeal.

We discovered a paved footpath (with a handrail) that goes from Carkeek Parkway to 113th alongside a creek.

This neighborhood is home to Viewlands Elementary School and some imaginative yard art.

We ended our walk with a stop at Lenny's Produce at 105th and Greenwood NW where we got some great fruits and veggies at reasonable prices - we will return.
