About

This tiny beach is accessible by foot or by bike, and is most easily reached by the Burke-Gilman Trail.

The site had been a public small street-end beach property used by the community as a public park and an access point to Lake Washington since the early 1900's.  In 2013, it became clear that the land was not, in fact, publicly owned. Neighboring community members rallied the City to help restore public access to this waterfront property. In 2015, the City Council authorized the acquisition. The City initiated a condemnation process in 2016, and a settlement was reached. Seattle Parks and Recreation finalized the purchase of this property in May 2019. The little park totals 13,736 sq. ft, mostly water, with a small shoreline area of 3,653 sq. ft.
