walker preserve bridgeJoin the WABI Weekday Walkers for a beautiful spring walk on Wednesday, April 15 starting at 9 a.m. at Walker Preserve, a little known park in Normandy Park.

The walk is about three miles, with some muddy and/or hilly patches on the Walker Preserve trail.

Note there is no parking at the park itself, so walkers will meet and park at Normandy Park City Hall.

During the walk, admire the great ivy-pulling work done monthly by volunteers.  (Want to help out?  Check out the Earth Day opportunity on April 19, or the Walker Preserve volunteer calendar.)

WHEN: Wednesday, April 15, 2015; meet around 8:50 a.m. so we can start walking promptly at 9 a.m.

WHERE:  Normandy Park City Hall parking lot,  801 SW 174th Street.

DIRECTIONS:  From 1st Ave South, turn west on SW 171st Street.  (You should see a small sign pointing to Cove and City Hall).  Follow the winding road until you see the playground and City Hall on the left (south) side of the street.  Click to enlarge map.

Walker Preserve signpostFun facts:  Is it Miller Creek or Walker Creek?  The creek you will see from the Walker Preserve trail is actually Miller Creek, the same creek that comes out at the Normandy Park Cove.  Miller and Walker Creeks run roughly parallel at this point, with Walker Creek further south.

For a look at the complicated hydrology of these stream basins, check out King County’s map.  For a fun photo tour of the two creeks, look at King County’s website: Miller Creek and Walker Creek.
