Public shoreline access features include 370-foot long, 8-foot wide graveled pathway to the river where there is a hand-carried boat launch for your small watercraft. As with all parks maintained by the Port of Seattle, organic landscaping practices are used at Salmon Cove Park and Shoreline Habitat, formerly Turning Basin #3. Native plantings and wildlife, important to the ecological restoration of the Duwamish River, thrive here. Salmon Cove offers access to the northernmost end of the Green River Trail, log benches, interpretive signage, and up to five vehicles may park along the roadway. Hours are dawn to dusk.
sbəq̓ʷaʔ Park and Shoreline Habitat (formerly Terminal 108/Diagonal Park) is probably the best small boat take-out launch site on the Lower Duwamish Waterway (LDW). Protected by a small indentation at the end of Diagonal Way, sbəq̓ʷaʔ Park offers plenty of parking and is notable as one of approximately 12 habitat mitigation areas along the LDW shoreline. It's a perfect site to watch tug boat activities or have a picnic lunch. Hours are from dawn to dusk.
