About

This little park is just about in the back yard of the Lake City Branch of the Seattle Public Library. Come and relax while your little ones enjoy the accessible sandbox, slide and whirl. 

The park, a gift to the City in 1964, is named after Albert Davis, a Lake City community leader who died in 1971. Born in Buffalo, NY, in 1890, Davis was a charter member of the Lake City Western Vigilantes, which raises funds for youth activities, a member of the Keystone Kops, originated the annual salmon barbecue with his Secret Seasoning, spearheaded the Lake City Pioneer Days celebration, was active in the Youth Center, and served as the unofficial goodwill "ambassador-mayor" of Lake City. He was awarded the Golden Acorn award by the PTA in 1971, in recognition of his dedication and service to children and youth.
