Incredible Parks Want Incredible Names
The Duwamish River is one of the most industrialized rivers, but it is the site of transformative community activism and public sector leadership. To recognize the stewardship of the community in restoring the Duwamish River, the Port and Seattle Parks Foundation is renaming six Port-owned parks and shoreline access sites along the Duwamish River to new names that reflect the cultural and environmental history of the area.
We received more than 3,000 responses during the 'Incredible Parks Want Incredblie Names' nomination phase. Join us on Tuesday, September 15 (Noon - 12:30 p.m.) via Microsoft Teams Meeting to listen live as we announce the top three nominations for each park and launch the park name scoring phase.
Terminal 105 Park
A creek runs along the south side of the main park, emptying into the Duwamish. The only way to get into the south "panhandle" of the park by land is to wait for low tide and step over the creek. In addition to three picnic tables and a covered gazebo, the park has a wonderful dock that offers an up-close angle on all the activity on the Duwamish River. Young kids would love to watch the machinery and boats in action immediately to the north.
