ABOUT THE PARK
The grassy beach (no lifeguards) is surrounded by an old stone wall, which marked the shoreline before 1917, when the lake level was lowered nine feet by the construction of the Lake Washington Ship Canal. There is enough room for a volleyball net above and quiet picnics and sunbathing below.
Denny Blaine Park is one of many small parcels of land donated to the city by Charles L. Denny and Elbert F. Blaine. Blaine is sometimes called "the father of the Seattle Park System". As Seattle Park Commissioner from 1902 to 1908, he played an important role in implementing the Olmsted Plan.
