St. Edwards State Park

An absolutely beautiful piece of property on the north east edge of Lake Washington. St Edwards

This is a wonderful place to get out of the ‘rat-race’ of the city and go for a hike or some technical bike rides. Once a year, it hosts a beer festival that always draws a cross-section of local brewers and provides wonderful locations for watching the sunset across the way.

Bastyr University shares the entrance and the grounds nearby.
Recent proposals from Bastyr about their growth has created a ground-swelling of protests by folks in the neighborhood regarding the negative effects expanding Bastyr would have on the area.

What amazes me is there hasn’t been a peep about the chance that Washington State government may allow private investment in the park. For as long as I have lived in this area, the rumors have been swirling that a local restaurant wants to build in St. Edwards.

The state has created a task force to begin looking at the proposal from one of Seattle’s restauranteurs. Plans
Wonder if the residents will protest?

    This was in the Sunday Seattle Times. Seems these parks commit the sin of Sloth if they don’t provide a revenue stream.
