Leschi & Frink Park Tour

July 15 @ 10:00 am - 12:30 pm

Leschi and Frink Parks were privately-owned parks open to the public when John Charles Olmsted arrived in 1903 to design Seattle’s Park and Boulevard system. Olmsted referred to these steeply-sloped parks as the “Rainier Heights Landslide Section” and recommended that the entire area become part of Seattle’s park system to prevent major loss from future landslides if developed into residential neighborhoods.

Tour details:

  • Meet at Leschi Elementary School, 135 32nd Avenue, Seattle 98122 promptly at 10 a.m.
  • The tour lasts approximately 2.5 hours and is approximately 2 miles in length.
  • This challenging loop walk includes a steep slope. Please wear appropriate shoes. And come prepared to walk both downhill and uphill on uneven ground and aging stone staircases. We urge you to bring hiking poles.

Free registration, please link to Eventbrite to sign up. If you have any additional questions about this tour, please email tours@seattleolmsted.org.
