Beacon Hill-Seward Park
Beacon Hill-Seward Park Community Info –

Beacon Hill in South Seattle, with its distinctive views of the Olympics and Cascades, has tremendous appeal to people who work downtown and commercial developers alike. It is currently a hotbed of activity undergoing significant revitalization as an affordable community close to the Seattle core. To the east, Seward Park, named for the park located on Bailey Peninsula near the south end of Lake Washington, offers coveted waterfront views and access. Between them, Columbia City is an urban center with ample shopping and many cultural local restaurants. Beacon Hill is served by light rail direct to downtown Seattle. The average downtown commute to about 12 minutes, car-free. Given its convenient proximity to I-5 and Interstate 90, a relatively affordable housing market, and its sweeping mountain and Puget Sound views, Beacon Hill has a lot to offer.

One of the highlights of Beacon Hill is Jefferson Park.  Its golf club is one of Seattle’s few public golf courses. The park itself offers visitors gorgeous views and many enjoy its lawn bowling, basketball, cricket and tennis spaces. The park also houses a community center, a wading pool and playground. The Beacon Food Forest is sited on a 7 acre plot off the southwest corner of the park. Check out these recent Seattle Times articles about the Columbia City and Mount Baker neighborhoods.
