Golden Gardens Park Fire Pits

Address: 8498 Seaview Pl. NW
Parks General Information: (206)684-4075

Enjoy a campfire on the beach at Golden Gardens Park!

Please light a fire ONLY in designated fire pits, available on a first-come, first-served basis. Burn only clean firewood (NO pallets please!), and douse your fire completely before you leave. Acceptable firewood is natural, bare, clean, dry cord-wood. It's against the law and it's unhealthy to burn yard waste, wood with nails or paint, refined lumber of any kind (whether treated or not), construction debris, or anything else one would burn just to dispose of it.

Beach Fire Rules:

  • Beach fires are a privilege; light a fire ONLY in one of the installed fire containers, numbered from 1 to 12, west of the picnic tables. (Seattle Municipal Code 18.12.270)
  • Use only clean, dry firewood.
  • Please douse your fire with water, not sand!
  • Fires are not allowed during air pollution alerts; we will post signs. (SMC 18.12.270)
  • Please don't remove any materials from the park, beach, dunes or forest. (SMC 18.12.070)
  • Please dispose of trash and ashes in the containers provided for each. (SMC 18.12.260)
  • Be considerate of others--please, no loud or amplified music! (SMC 18.12.170)
  • Remember, no alcohol is allowed, and parks are drug-free zones!
  • Remember, the park closes at 11:30 p.m. and the parking lot is locked!
