Spring Family Outing Idea - 2024

Park at the Center for Urban Horticulture (parking is available for the public in the lots off 41st Street). Start your walk on NE Wahkiakum Ln and do the full mile loop counterclockwise. If your kiddos tire easily, just do the part along the water, on the Waterfront Trail. You'll see heron, ducks, geese and views of Lake Washington and the 520 bridge. Wear waterproof shoes as the trail can get muddy in spots. Reward yourself and your kiddos with a General Porpoise doughnut afterwards (about a 10 minute walk from the Center for Urban Horticulture). Parking at General Porpoise is extremely limited, so that's why I suggest walking.

Alternatively, if your kiddo can't wait until the end to get doughnuts, first walk to get doughnuts, then eat it on one of the benches along Waterfront Trail.
