ABOUT THE PARK

Roanoke Park is a grassy, pleasant space located on north Capitol Hill where 10th Avenue E ends at E Roanoke.

Located in a residential area, it has fruit trees that burst into color in the spring; it's an ideal place to enjoy a picnic while your kids frolic in the play area.

Acreage: 2.2

HISTORY

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.
