Join EarthCorps and the Green Seattle partnership as we continue to restore this amazing park. Today we will be performing maintenance on past restoration sites and removing invasive plant species such as English ivy. This is a Green Seattle Partnership project.
A park with a view, Golden Gardens sits on the shore of Shilshole Bay and over looks the Olympic Mountains. Who would think that such a tranquil scene would be the sight of a struggle of epic proportions? Within the forests of Golden Gardens, the invasive plant English ivy is crowding out native trees and shrubs and making the survival of native seedlings extremely difficult.
Route #17 will drop you off near the top of Golden Gardens Park and you will have to walk down quite a way to the registration area (Off-Leash Area Parking lot).
Route #46 will drop you off at the bottom of the park and you will have to walk up to the registration area (Off-Leash Area Parking lot).
From I-5 (Northbound or Southbound)
Take the 45th Street NE exit and head westbound on 45th St NE (towards Wallingford). Proceed through the intersection of 45th St NE and Stone Way N, veering right on N Midvale. At the stoplight/stop sign turn left on N 46th Street and follow it as it turns into N Market Street. Follow NW Market ST westbound through Ballard until it terminates where you will take a soft left on NW 54th St/ NW 54th ST becomes Seaview Ave NW. From here you will be able to see the water (Shilshole Bay) on your left. Follow Seaview AVE NW until you see the EarthCorps sign at the stop sign. Turn right and proceed under the railroad tracks to the upper parking lot (where the dog park/off leash area is located) and look for the EarthCorps table.
