At Carkeek Park, home to Piper’s Creek where salmon return year after year, visitors can explore the secrets of this northwest Seattle watershed where 220 acres of lush forest, meadows, wetlands, creeks, and beach are formed by the magic of water and time. Walk the Piper’s Canyon Story Trail, play on the unique salmon themed play area, or touch time at the historic Piper Orchard. In Carkeek Park, years of hard work by neighbors and volunteers have restored major portions of the forest, built miles of trails, created sustainable gardens, educated visitors, reclaimed a unique historic fruit orchard, and created habitat to bring salmon back to Piper’s Creek.
