Seward Park In A Nutshell

Seward Park is a largely residential neighborhood in southeast Seattle that borders Rainier Beach to the south and Mt. Baker to the north. Seward Park itself is a 300-acre wooded peninsula surrounded by Lake Washington, featuring hiking trails, swimming areas, an old-growth forest, and a popular jogging and biking path. The neighborhood is home to a large mix of homes, including waterfront estates, mid-century bungalows, and charming Craftsmans.

History

In 1911, the City of Seattle acquired the peninsula in south Seattle that would become Seward Park, named for U.S. Secretary of State William H. Seward (noted for advocating the purchase of Alaska). The surrounding neighborhood began to grow with the development of Lake Washington Boulevard and traffic from a nearby sawmill, and soon homes were being built, and a new south Seattle residential community was born.

Points of Interest

Besides the beautiful park in the neighborhood, which features a 2.5 mile walking trail along the peninsula, hiking trails, swimming areas, a playground, and boat launches, the neighborhood also features a establishments such as PCC Natural Market, Cafe Vita, Bent Burgers, and Flying Squirrel pizza. The Lakewood and Seward Park Community Club is a 100 year old association serving the area and hosts events, monthly meetings, and offers classes to members such as yoga, boot camp, and music.
