Journeys Around Seattle, #58: Magnolia Park

April 21, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

Magnolia Park is a narrow strip of greenery that runs along the top of the bluffs at the south end of the Magnolia neighborhood. The views overlooking Puget Sound are extraordinary, especially on a clear day, stretching from the Olympic Mountains in the west to the city skyline in the southeast.

The park itself isn't particularly noteworthy. For most of its length, it's pretty much just a narrow bit of greenspace, with a sidewalk following its length and benches scattered throughout, sandwiched between rows of steep bluffs and the well-landscaped houses of Magnolia. On the southern end there is another section of the park, with a picnic area and swingset, but too surrounded by trees for any sort of view.

The final view of the Seattle skyline in this set is from Ursula Judkins viewpoint, a small patch of greenery just east of the park itself.
