Landing Parkway

Landing Parkway is located in the Mt. Baker neighborhood and is approximately three blocks long.

Landing Parkway is a short stretch of roadway connecting Sierra Drive to Lake Washington Boulevard. The last block as it approaches the boulevard forks broadly, with one lane angling south and the other angling north down the slope to reach the shoreline parkway below. These lanes and the triangle of lawn it captures are all within the Lake Washington Boulevard ROW. A small “pocket park” called Sierra Place is located at the junction of Landing Parkway and Sierra Drive.

As with Lakewood Triangle and Hunter Boulevard, Landing Parkway and Sierra Place were set aside “for parkway purposes” when the Mt. Baker neighborhood was first platted and developed by the Hunter Track Improvement Co. in 1909. The neighborhood was laid out in consultation with the Olmsted Brothers.
