Frink Park

This tract of wooded land was given to the city in 1907 by John M. Frink, a Washington State Senator, whose mansion is still located in Leschi at 31st & Jackson on the SW corner, an imposing home that looks east toward the park.

Frink Park is the antithesis of the many manicured city parks with broad walks for strolling. This is a heavily vegetated park with 3000 feet of hiking trails. It is essentially located in a ravine with a creek and small waterfall. Its 17.2 acres are diligently being returned to a place of native plants as volunteer work parties remove the invasive ivies and blackberries.
