Carkeek Park

Carkeek Park is located in North Seattle, bordering Puget Sound. Piper’s Creek — a salmon-bearing stream — runs through the park into the Sound.

History

Carkeek Park was purchased in the 1920’s and named after Morgan Carkeek. Since that time, various ravines and properties have been acquired. The park is currently 216 acres. In addition to Piper’s Creek, a smaller stream also runs through one of the park's many ravines- Venema Creek. Most of the parks acres are forested with 60-80 year-old Red Alder and Big Leaf Maple.
