Walking in Myrtle Edwards Park

 

Another scenic place to explore in Seattle is Myrtle Edwards Park.  This park features a 1.25 mile trail that goes along the waterfront and offers a lovely place to run, walk, bike, or skate. 

Some of the sights you will see from the trail include:

The Park has separate paths for walking and for biking.

You can enter the park just north of Pier 70 next to the Olympic Sculpture Park and walk north. 

Another place to enter or exit Myrtle Edwards Park is at the Helix Pedestrian Bridge on the north end of the Park.  Metro buses can take you on Elliott Avenue and let you off near the Helix Bridge.  Cross over the bridge and intersect with the Park walkway next to the Port of Seattle Grain Terminal. Head south  from this point.

Note:  there are no public restrooms along Myrtle Edwards Park.
