Wednesday Evening Walk -Golden Gardens Park - Seattle

We are revisiting some of our Wednesday evening walks.  We will walk 3-5 miles, in about 1.5 to 2 hours (starting promptly at 7 we will be done by8:30- 9pm)

As the days are beginning to shorten we will by pass the trails and meet just outside the park gates and walk the paved waterfront walk and down to the marina. (dogs not allowed on the beaches)

Located in Ballard on Puget Sound, this popular park offers extraordinary views of Puget Sound and the Olympic Mountains.

A recent project restored two wetlands, established a short loop trail, and restored the northern beach. Golden Gardens offers strolls along a rugged coastline, hikes through forest trails, sunbathing on sandy beaches, fishing from a pier and a boat launch.

The park is also home to an off-leash area for dogs in the upper northern portion of the park. Dogs are not allowed on beaches, or children's play areas in Seattle parks, per the Seattle Municipal Code.


Dogs in attendance must be leashed and have their owner present.

Children under the age of 12 must be in a stroller, leashed or have a separate handler than the dog. They are not allowed to walk the dog and must be respectful and stay away (unless invited) from dogs that are not their own.

We will make it a priority to walk as a group.  Paces may be a little different but I will stop along the way for others to catch up.  Everybody needs to watch out for others.  Let somebody know if you need a break or are going to turn around/

Please check email or this site the day of the event for any last minute changes or cancellations due to weather, road closures, illness, etc.  I will try to post last minute details by 7am.

    Kendra so sorry to hear about your dog getting injured!
    I have had several bad experiences at dog parks mostly with border collies treating our little dog Penny as prey. I had a border collie/greyhound prior to Penny. She was highly trained , but I was very aware of her instincts too. I still go to the dog parks, but ask everyone to watch out for each others' small pups. All owners need to be alert but especially of the little pups like ours. UGH

    Stunning evening for a walk along the water. Sad to see the evenings ending so early though.

    Because it will probably be darkening before we finish we will not be meeting up by the off leash park. Meet in the big parking lot just before you get to the gated area before the bathhouse and playground. Look for my blue Hyundai Tucson. If it is not raining we may go up into the trails first before heading along the waterfront. We will start right at 7 and if you are running late you may watch for us coming out from the trails. See you later.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
