From the lively beachfront of Alki where you can walk along the water, dine in a wide array of eateries, then enjoy a stroll or bike ride along a glorious, miles long path that hugs the picturesque coast from Puget Sound to Elliott Bay.
And Lincoln Park, where you can meander through tall trees, picnic at the beach, swim in a saltwater pool, and catch a ferry to Vashon Island or the Olympic Peninsula. Plus Schmitz Park and Camp Long where you can forget the city and wander through peaceful wooded trails. And a number of other fields where you can play a game of soccer, softball or ultimate Frisbee.

They are the most walkable centers of our community - where you can shop at vibrant local businesses offering fashion, books, food and wine, toys, home décor, bikes, art supplies, jewelry, plants and garden supplies...
