Walking in
Southwest Queen Anne

With cobblestone lanes, historic landmarks homes, beautiful tall trees, small parks, awesome views of Puget Sound, Magnolia, the marina, and the fisher terminal…

Queen Anne is really one of a kind neighborhood.

I took a very nice walk on a sunny Winter Sunday, from Kerry Park (you know its classic view of downtown Seattle), to West Prospect street, West Highland drive, West Garfield street, Parsons Gardens, historic Wilcox Wall, Betty Bowen viewpoint, and also West Kinnear Place.

Queen Anne Neighborhood is on a hill, which means your route is full of beautiful stairways. Enjoy!

Magnuson Park

Magnuson Park is one of the largest Seattle parks along Lake Washington northeast of Seattle.

You can walk or run on more than four miles of trails or swim when it is the season.

You can explore a range of natural areas. There are grasslands, wooded hillsides, wetlands and shoreline within the park’s boundaries.  Look for kiosks throughout the park that describe the types of birds and animals you are likely find in the nearby.
