The 17,500 square-foot t̓ałt̓ałucid Park and Shoreline Habitat, formerly 8th Ave. South Park, include more than 200 feet of public shoreline access, a gravel walkway with a hand-carried boat launch via concrete steps to the river, park benches, picnic tables, and lighting. These features make this hidden gem an ideal site to launch your small boat, canoe, or kayak on the river, or to have an impromptu picnic lunch. Large metal gears pay homage to its community bridge history, and since 2008, the site has been a Salmon Safe-certified park. In 2016 it was one of several hosts to the "Duwamish Revealed Arts Festival" art exhibit. The park now boasts a permanent community youth-designed ceramic tile public art installation.
t̓uʔəlaltxʷ Village Park and Shoreline Habitat, formerly known as Terminal 105 Park, off West Marginal Way S.W. near West Seattle, offers a 50 foot fishing pier and a sweeping view of the Duwamish River estuary. A creek runs along the south side of the 1.2 acre park, emptying into the Duwamish. In addition to three picnic tables and a covered gazebo, the park has 220 feet of shoreline access where adults and kids alike can watch machinery and boats in action immediately to the north. Hours are from dawn to dusk.
