Smith Cove Park
This Port of Seattle Park is just west of Pier 91 on Elliott Bay. A 0.7-mile jogging and biking path parallels the road as it winds past warehouses before finally emerging at the Smith Cove bulkhead right beside Pier 91 and Elliott Bay. The concrete promenade with picnic tables provides a chance to spread out and enjoy the views all the way to Alki, as well as the bustling port activity. Here you will find lots of ducks and seagulls to entertain you as well.
The parcel located to the west of 23rd Ave W has been traditionally used by the Magnolia Youth Soccer Club for youth soccer. The intent is to maintain this active use on the parcel and also to incorporate other active recreational uses such as lacrosse, ultimate Frisbee and baseball/softball. During the public process led by the Friends of Smith Cove Park (FoSCP) in 2015, beach volleyball was also highlighted as a potential active recreational use on this parcel. Current improvements may be limited to drainage and irrigation infrastructure to make the current field more playable. However, the long term vision is that the field be improved so that it is playable year-round and available for a variety of youth and adult sports.
