PHOTO FRIDAY: Nature Walk Through Recently-Renovated Mathison Park
It’s Photo Friday, the sun is shining (at least for a few minutes), and everywhere around Burien nature is springing forth, including the recently-renovated Mathison Park, with a new trail system, exercise/interpretive path, park furnishings, a new playground, along with invasive plant removal and the replanting of native plant species.
Re-dedicated on Arbor Day (April 13), Mathison Park, located at 533 South 146th Street, is about two blocks south of the highest point in Burien (463 feet) and about 10 feet below the peak elevation. Its position on the south slope provides excellent opportunities to take advantage of views to Puget Sound, Mount Rainier, and SeaTac Airport.
Upcoming improvements will include the addition of a restroom, parking lot, public plaza and a community garden.
Photographer Michael Brunk took a nature walk through the park, accompanied of course by his trusty camera, and he captured this Sound Slideshow, complete with “found” audio (so crank up your speakers):
