Ravenna Boulevard originally was a deep ravine like Ravenna Park, having been cut by drainage from the post-Ice Age “Lake Russell”, which was formed by melt-off from the “Vashon Glacial Ice Sheet”, approximately 50,000 years ago. The glacial basin that remained is now Green Lake, which continued to drain through this ravine until about 1911. The stream is now mostly spring-fed and drains into Union Bay. Named for W.W. Beck, for whom information is not readily available.
