Seward Park

Travel in Seattle is a memorable experience with a visit to Seward Park. A integral part of Seattle travel and tourism, Seward Park is an old growth forest located in the South of Seattle. Occupying about 300 acres (120 hectares), Seward Park is a forested area along Bailey Peninsula.

Many of the trees along Seward Park are two or more centuries old, and this area forms part of Seattle's natural heritage, as one could see a view of Seattle before its industrialization. Nonetheless, Seward Park's vegetation is still relatively young, considering that the trees along Seattle before were more than a thousand years old before its industrialization.
