North Beach Park and Ravines
This wooded ravine is in northwest Seattle. In 2003, it is home to at least 10 great blue heron nests. It includes a mix of private and public ownership, primarily between Northwest 90th and Northwest 92nd streets.
This project includes potential acquisitions to connect and extend existing green space in the North Beach Natural Area.
In 1993, the city adopted the Greenspace Policy to encourage the preservation of green spaces in Seattle. The policy included maps for more than 30 greenspaces. The policy aimed to preserve natural landscape and habitat; provide natural buffers between land uses; mitigate noise and air pollution; reduce need for constructed storm water systems; and preserve natural drainage. North Beach Natural Area was one of the green spaces mapped in the policy.
