ABOUT THE PARK
Following the pathways down the hillside will afford the visitor with great views of the Lake Washington Ship Canal, where foaming water flows through the spillways and ships can be observed traversing the government locks. There is the opportunity for a short, comfortable walk along the promenade, where one can take advantage of park benches and cozy shelters, before reaching the canal itself, where the fish ladder is clearly visible.Acreage: 3.9
Commodore Park is named for the street that runs in front of it, although it is not certain whom the street was intended to honor. Most likely it was Commodore Thomas Peary, who reached the North Pole during the Seattle’s World’s Fair of 1909.
