About

Go three blocks east from the southeast corner of Rodgers Park to find this street-end knoll, cleverly converted into a tiny park. It has a central play area, with a drinking fountain and benches conveniently placed so you can watch your children climb, slide and crawl. (Excerpt from "Enjoying Seattle's Parks" by Brandt Morgan)

The flat ravine bottom just below the viewpoint was the site of the early-day "Killman's Sand Bunkers". The area was platted in 1907 by the Mayfair Land Co. Mayfair is a fashionable district in London, so named from an annual fair held in May, which was actually abolished in 1708. (Edited from the files of Don Sherwood, 1916-1981, Park Historian.)
