Explore "Hidden Gems" in The Neighborhood

The Laurelhurst Community Club published this information in a recent newsletter:

Enjoy Our Neighborhood’s Hidden Gems
Laurelhurst enjoys several public shoreline properties – six street ends, with two of those wrapped in state waterways, and one stand-alone state waterway. There are also several stairways hidden around the ‘hood that will hike the heart rate. These areas afford stunning views of the Olympic Mountains, Lake Washington, the Cascades, Mount Rainier, the top of the Space Needle, Union Bay, Husky Stadium, and more.

Check out the variety of birds, count turtles sunning on logs, or launch a kayak.
