If you like kayaking or canoeing, Warren G. Magnuson Park offers access to Lake Washington just for you! Shoreline launching is currently available in two areas for hand-carried, non-motorized boats:
- The 30-foot section of shoreline located immediately to south of the swimming beach. To get there, enter the park at N.E. 65th Street from Sand Point Way N.E. Go straight ahead to the lake (approximately ½ mile), then left (north) along the shoreline. Park next to Sand Point Head (Kite Hill) and the Fin Art Project, near the swimming beach.
- The 100-foot section of shoreline just south of the public boat launch area and north of the park's southern boundary. To get there, enter the park at N.E. 65th Street from Sand Point Way N.E. Go straight ahead to the lake and park.
- Sail Sand Point is the park’s community sailing center. It is located in the northwestern corner of Warren G. Magnuson Park, on Lake Washington. To get there enter the park at N.E. 74th Street from Sand Point Way N.E.. Go straight ahead, then left (north) at 63rd Avenue N.E., continue ¼ mile to N.E. 77th Street then left (west) and continue west then north and through an underpass. Sail Sand Point is directly ahead. Visit their web site at: www.sailsandpoint.org
Once on the lake, you might like to travel part of the Lakes-to-Locks Water Trail, officially dedicated in 2000 for hand-carried non-motorized watercraft. Or you could paddle an estimated six to eight miles to the University of Washington Arboretum.
