ABOUT THE PARK
Roanoke Park is a grassy, pleasant space located on north Capitol Hill where 10th Avenue E ends at E Roanoke.
The original owners, David T. Denny and Henry Fuhrman, named the park after Roanoke, Virginia, the first English settlement in the United States. The City originally acquired it in 1908 for hikers and bicyclists headed down the long, winding road to Washington Park and Lake Washington.
