This Vegetation Management Plan has been crafted for Warren G. Magnuson Park, to address a multifaceted need to clarify the intent, methods, and means for managing its diverse landscapes and related uses. Warren G. Magnuson Park represents many things to its many users and neighbors. It is a place for a daily energetic run or a quiet reflective walk; a broad, sweeping expanse of open space along the shorelines of Lake Washington; a place for active sports and recreation; a pastoral viewshed; a setting for picnics, swimming, birding, kite-flying, wind surfing, boat launching, and biking; a venue for myriad cultural, educational, and social gatherings; a sanctuary and a refuge. Warren G. Magnuson is one of Seattle's destination parks, a place as often used by visitors arriving from across the city as by neighbors who simply walk through the front gates. Park use and management are of passionate interest to many who come to the Park, and to those who live nearby. Their interests are as diverse as the landscape of the Park itself.
