  • This map doesn't show the entire park, it goes further north, under the 520 Hiway and up the ship canal.
    Late in September, it was nice day with fall in the air.  We headed off to the arboretum near the University of Washington.

    One thing about this park, it was doomed to be a freeway interchange during the 60's.  That didn't happen, but there is the approach to the Hiway 520 floating bridge in the middle of it.

    Follow this link to the official web page for the park.  One thing to about this park, it is part of the University of Washington and was designed, in part, by the Olmstead brothers -- famous for  their dad's work on Central Park in New York City.



    This is me under the 520

    Gregg under the 520 with the UW Husky Stadium in the background.
     Looking north toward Laurelhurst.
    Instead of cars, lots of people take their boats to the game.
