ABOUT THE PARK
A densely wooded patch of forest in West Seattle, Fauntleroy Park has a network of trails and paths great for wandering, hiking and dog-walking. Recent and ongoing volunteer work parties, organized through the Trails Program, have been improving the trails.Acreage: 32.9
"Fauntleroy" is the community name, taken from the nearby cove on Puget Sound at Lincoln Park. The Cove was named in 1857 by Lt. George Davidson, who took soundings in the area, to honor his betrothed - Ellinor Fauntleroy of Indiana. He also named a peak in the Olympic Mountains to honor her and her family.
