Seward Park


Seward Park is a 300 acre peninsula on Lake Washington, located in southeast Seattle. A 2.4 mile bike and pedestrian trail loops around the perimeter of the park. Among the park forest's inhabitants are bald eagles, wild rabbits and Peruvian parrots. A surviving remant of old growth forest makes up about a third of the park. There are numerous small beaches, an amphitheater, a picnic area, a playground, a native plant garden, an art studio and miles of hiking trails. The name of the peninsula Seward Park is located on is Bailey Peninsula. Seward Park is home to the Seward Park Environmental & Audubon Center, a partnership between National Audubon Society and Seattle Parks & Recreation.
