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)

Acreage: 1


The flat ravine bottom just below the viewpoint was the site of the early-day Killmans 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.
