Family Friendly Playground, picnic tables, Annual Garden at the Pergola. Kids will love the birds. There is a seasonally open restroom. There are some sections of this path that are difficult with strollers.

Hours: Open half an hour before sunrise, close half an hour after sunset. No swimming for people or pets due to high levels of toxic algae. For dogs, there are three fully fenced areas for off-leash play, including one just for small dogs.

Description

Hike above the wetlands of Wapato on the north side of the park. A large pipe transverses above the wetlands, with a well-made trail atop. This trail tours the treetops and is an unusual experience, a true delight to find in an urban area.

See the park's website for the event calendar and more details.
