Baker Tunnel. Ride or walk from Sam Smith Park, named after the first black city councilmember, through the tunnel, enjoy the art and then connect to Lake Washington Boulevard. Bring a picnic and a bathing suit – you’re just a few blocks from Mt. Baker Beach. Ravenna Park and 20th Avenue (NE) You can see the sports fields, tennis court and playground from the street but you’ll have to walk or bike to experience the beauty of Ravenna Park. Walk underneath the car-free 20th Avenue NE bridge to reach the hidden place etched with quotes by Robert Frost. Find quiet peace in the city. Southgate Roller Rink (SW) Family skate, hip-hop nights, skate-a-roake, pride skate, adult night, Rainier Roller Girls – there is something for everyone. You could drive, but why not ride the 120 bus on Delridge or try the new Delridge/Highland Park greenway instead? Carkeek Park (NW) What better place to spend a summer day than at Carkeek Park? Enjoy the shade of the creekside paths, play Frisbee in the park, or soak up the sun on the beach. Explore miles of trails and find the historic Piper Orchard that dates from 1889. Foster and Marsh Island (Central) We all know the arboretum is beautiful. But have you ever taken the loop across Foster and Marsh Islands? In just 1.5 miles you will see ducks, kayakers, lily pads and, if you are lucky, a great blue heron catching its lunch. Make a day of it – picnic and explore the rest of the arboretum as there are many opportu- nities to walk and bike in this luscious escape from the urban grind.
