Seward Park

After our last few walks in industrial areas, my husband and I were ready for a change so, today, we took a 5.9 mile walk in the residential Seward Park neighborhood.

This is a lovely area near the south end of Lake Washington and we started walking south on Lake Washington Blvd. S.

admiring some impressive homes along the way.

The land here slopes down to the lake and we passed quite a few staircases, especially at the end of dead-end streets

and near spots where streets may have been platted but never build.

We walked into Seward Park and noticed a playground with a small zip line and the Seward Park Environmental and Audubon Center.

Along the way, we saw signs for the Genesee Area - Combined Sewer Overflow Reduction Project, a Mutt Mitt dispenser,

a sign telling us to slow down and drive like we lived here

and some green open space (which were either lovely side yards or platted but never paved streets).

We ended by walking north to the tidy, city-run Lakewood Marina.

We will be happy to return to this area to walk through Seward Park and enjoy the lake views.
