From our friends at WABI Burien:
Let’s venture back to Waterworks Gardens near Renton on Wednesday, Aug 17.
The King County website says:
“Waterworks Gardens is designed as a series of garden “rooms.” The Knoll is the entry to Waterworks. The path then passes through a series of leaf-shaped ponds, an inlaid mosaic Grotto and wetlands.”
We’ll start at Starfire Sports Complex in Tukwila, where there is plenty of parking. Walking next to the Green River, we’ll make our way to the Gardens where we’ll take a lovely, paved pathway through the Gardens, over intricate stonework and past marshes and ponds. There is one area where the path rises gradually, but most of the way is level. The walk is about 3 miles roundtrip and will take us 60-80 minutes.
Date: Wednesday, August 17, 2022
Time: Meet 5-10 minutes before 9 a.m. so we can start walking promptly at 9:00 am.

Parking: There is plenty of parking at the Sports Complex.
