North Beach Park News!

Join Friends of North Beach Park at one of these upcoming events — we hope to see you soon.

Saturday, July 27, 9 a.m. to Noon: Friends of North Beach Park work party.
“Friends of North Beach Park” meets the 4th Saturday of the month, now through November. We provide tools, gloves and guidance. You bring a willingness to play in the woods helping make North Beach Park a better park and Seattle a better city. Wear weather-appropriate layers that can get dirty and sturdy shoes or mud boots. Bring water or snacks as you need them, but there are no facilities in the park. All ages welcome, but children must be kept under supervision of their parent or guardian. Parking is available on 90th street, east of 24th. Metro route #61 goes directly past the park, and routes #48 and #40 stop at 85th St. and 24th Ave. For registration and further details, please visit the Green Seattle Partnership website.

Saturday, August 10, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.: Art in the Garden, 8527 25th Ave. NW
Friends of North Beach Park will be at Art in the Garden, a neighborhood party sponsored by the Ballard P Patch. There are a beer garden, artists booths, food trucks, and a lovely p-patch in full bloom. Stop by to say hello, meet your forest stewards and talk about North Beach Park. Stay to enjoy the Art in the Garden, pie auction, food, and fun. We look forward to meeting you. For further information, visit the Art in the Garden website.

Saturday, August 24, 9 a.m. to Noon: Friends of North Beach Park work party.
Here’s a reminder for the 4th Saturday work party in August. Many of the details for the July work party are the same. Exactly what we’ll be working on hasn’t been set yet, but it’s sure to be challenging fun. For registration and further details, please visit the Green Seattle Partnership website.

If you can’t make the July or August work parties, dates for the rest of the year are September 28, October 26, and November 23. The October and November work parties are likely to involve planting.

EarthCorps at North Beach Park
EarthCorps returns to North Beach Park September 14th. EarthCorps events run from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Please visit the EarthCorps website to sign up.

Donate to North Beach Park
If you can’t make it to a work party but would like to support our efforts, please visit the Seattle Parks Foundation website at and click on the “Donate” button. All proceeds from your tax-deductible donation will be spent on improving the park.
