Lakeridge Park was named in 1947 by The Seattle Planning Commission. The parks was once known as "Deadhorse Canyon", named in 1909 by homesteaders Chas J. Walker upon the death and dehydration of a horse which had long roamed the area and been a pet of pioneer children. Walker helped log this area for the Taylor Sawmill on the beach just to the east. George Kinnear was the original owner of the property.
