This is a little greenbelt and childrens wild haunt beside Fauntleroy Elementary School. Slide down a steep non-trail to a questionable Fauntleroy Creek and then try to get back up again.

Kilbourne Park was a gift given to the City in 1951 for park, camping, playground, and stadium purposes. It was to be named Kilbourne Park after the donor Dr. Edward Corliss Kilbourne, who envisioned an amphitheater together with the adjacent school. Dr. Kilbourne came to Seattle in 1873 becoming the foremost dentist in the Northwest, establishing the Washington Dental Association and State Dental Code.
