Five Acre Woods
The Five Acre Woods site was acquired Seattle Public Utilities and held for ~45 years in a relatively untouched state, before the Lake Forest Park Stewardship Foundation led an effort to preserve this area as an urban forest park. Thanks to the tremendous groundswell of community support and with commitments from the LFP Stewardship Foundation, the City of Lake Forest Park purchased the property now called Five Acre Woods in early December 2017. There are lots of trails to explore and plenty of birds to see and hear!
What Do I Need to Know Before Visiting?
Park along the road on 45th Place NE, not directly in front of the park. Cross at the crosswalk and be cautious of oncoming traffic.
What Will I see Here?
Varied Thrushes, Purple Finches, Bewick's Wrens, Pacific Wrens, Pacific-slope Flycatchers, and Chestnut-backed Chickadees are just some of the birds you'll find.
