Parks and Rec to improve shoreline access at 36th Ave NW
Additions include overlook, bench and bicycle rack
Update, Aug. 19
We stopped by and snapped a picture of the location. We imagine that they'll be taking out some of the foilage to provide access to a view of the shoreline.

Seattle Parks and Recreation and Seattle Department of Transportation are working together to improve public street ends and increase shoreline access. Select street ends along Lake Washington, Lake Union, Puget Sound, and other waterways in Seattle provide physical and/or visual access to the shoreline and water for all Seattle residents to enjoy.
In Ballard, they will be improving the shore at the (imaginary) end of 36th Ave NW, located in Ballard on the north side of the canal and adjacent to the Burke Gilman trail, past the train bridge a bit. Proposed improvements include an overlook, bicycle rack and a picnic table.
