Glendale Forest

Glendale Forest

About the Park
Glendale Forest is a new five-acre forested park in the Glendale neighborhood of North Highline. The park encompasses a wooded ravine with a stream flowing north toward the Duwamish River. This natural, undeveloped area is within walking distance of many homes, several nearby apartment buildings, schools, and places of worship. This site is intended to serve the local park needs of the Glendale neighborhood (as opposed to providing a larger regional destination for recreation).

Acquired in spring 2020, King County Parks is working with several partners to remove debris and invasive vegetation (like English ivy and Himalayan blackberry) so that native plants and trees can thrive. Soon, there will be a new walking trail through the forest, delivered in partnership with the Washington Trails Association’s “The Trail Next Door” program.
