Primarily used as a natural woods drive, Frink Park is a densely vegetated ravine. South Frink Place winds through the park and opens onto Lake Washington Boulevard.

Acreage: 17.2


The park was donated to the City in 1907 by John M. Frink, Washington state Senator and founder of the Washington Iron Works. A thickly overgrown ravine, the park was spruced up in 1909 for the Alaska-Yukon-Pacific Exposition with footbridges, paths, benches and a bridge over the ravine.

In 1999, neighbors formed Friends of Frink Park ( and developed the Frink Park Concept Plan, followed by the beginnings of native habitat restoration and over 3,000 feet of improved hiking trails.
