Ravenna Park

Ravenna Park, consisting of 50 acres, is a ½ mile wooded ravine which connects two picnic areas just north of the University District.

History

The Ravenna Park ravine was formed when melt-off from the Vashon Glacial Ice Sheet formed Lake Russell and cut drainage ravines through new glacial fill. Ravenna Creek, which runs along the park’s wooded trail, is fed only by seeps and swells. The Ravenna Daylighting Project (completed in 2006) created 650 ft. of additional creek corridor habitat.
