Apologies that my reflection is in the picture but it was a sunny day and I was trying to be quick.

Here is a cool park to enjoy in West Seattle…and it’s not Alki! Let me introduce you to Me Kwa Park in the south end of West Seattle. What a fun find!

Full disclosure, this park was discovered on a quick google search after a run to the nearest Petco. I convinced my husband I would do a speedy recon of the park and grab pictures as quickly as possible but I “just had to check it out!”

The drive to this park is great. Cute houses of all ages and sizes. Amazing views of the sound. Interesting shops. Parking is abundant and this being said on a Saturday at 2 pm.

This guy caught my eye because it’s a little of everything. Trails through forest, grass lawns with BBQ pits and picnic tables and across the street…beach access!! Dogs must be leashed and no smoking permitted, just an FYI. Also saw a port a potty  right off the street for those who need to spot to go nearby.

As summer is winding down, why not take advantage of the tides and this gem for some beach combing. Grab a marine life guide or smart phone and see what creatures share the same city as us! Or enjoy the shade and learn about some local plant life. Or best yet, let the learning happen naturally and as I always suggest, pack a picnic and just enjoy time with your family and friends while taking in some awesome views.
