Seward Park

Seward Park Professional Review and Guide

"Before Lake Washington was lowered by the opening of the ship canal in 1917, the peninsula now occupied by Seward Park was almost an island. Today, the park is an island of a different sort.

Resisting the Seattle development that has spread around it for almost a century, Seward is now one of the last significant vestiges of old-growth forest within the city limits. A paved circular loop follows the island’s lakefront shoreline and connects to a network of single-track trails beneath the ancient trees."
