It has the potential to be quite a place to experience Seattle at its best. Right on Lake Washington, with views of the Cascade Mountains, a modest greenbelt with indigenous plants like Indian Plum and right off the 7 bus line. Chinook Beach Park is quite a place, except for the litter. The Seattle Park District is getting better at upkeep (probably after numerous Find It, Fix It petitions from a reporter only known as “PN”) but those who litter are relentless.
The Cascadia Poetics Lab invites you to come help us tidy up the park on Earth Day, Friday, April 22, at 1pm. We’ll have some bags and at least two garbage pickers, but you might want to bring your own gloves. Harold Fields at Umami Kushi will provide some pan after we do our work.
What: Earth Day Cleanup
Where: Chinook Beach Park
When: Friday, April 22, 2022, 1-3pm.
