Notes:
Seward Park is a 300 acre (121 hectare) park on the southwest shores of Lake Washington. An island until Lake Washington was lowered in 1917, it now boasts a 2.4 mile (3.9km) paved trail around the perimeter, lots of interior forested trails, an amphitheater, picnic and gathering areas, and a swim beach that's guarded during non-COVID times. The interior of the park also has a circular road accessible by car to park users and which is used for bicycle criterium racers every week during the summer. The large bay on the northern side (Andrews Bay) is very popular with power boat users with boats anchoring for overnight stays. The swim beach is also on Andrews Bay. In the summer Seward Park is the venue for a large sprint triathlon. Due to its east-west orientation, Seward Park offers wind protected swimming no matter whether the wind is coming from either the north or from the south (the primary wind directions in our area).
