Lake People Park (Xacua'bs)
This half-acre of forested land provides views north to downtown Seattle and east to the Cascades. It also preserves a green oasis just blocks from Rainier Ave. S. A flat area at the top of the park includes benches and boulders to sit on and a picnic table. Follow the trails to read interpretive signs that help identify native plants. The park incorporates a walkway and public stairs in the Bradford St. unopened right-of-way, connecting the residential neighborhood at the top of the hill with the Rainier commercial district at the bottom of the hill.
The park name reflects the historical presence of the Duwamish tribe in this area of the city. Xacua'bs (pronounced hah-chu-ABSH) means "Lake People."
