Ravenna Park is a beautiful oasis and escape from the city life. 

Seattle is very special because of its peaceful parks tucked into the metropolitan city. Ravenna Park is one of those small escapes from city life. Located in the Ravenna district in north Seattle, this park contains a 1.7-mile loop trail that is very popular all year round. On your short hike you’ll be able to spot different types of wildflowers, and birds, you might even forget that you are surrounded by the city.

The Park connects two picnic areas to a very popular area for hiking, jogging, picnics, and more. The park is north of University District, which is a great area for all ages. Kids will love the wading pool on hot days, and the play area for some imaginative fun. There are also baseball fields trails, and tennis courts to practice your swing! 

If you want to reserve a picnic area for a large group, visit the picnic reservation page for information on reserving and hosting your picnic there for a party, cookeout, or reunion. 

With a partially paved path, and very low difficulty this trail is for every family member. Although the path is not accessible for strollers, leashed dogs are welcome, and you might want to bring along your camera as the bridges you’ll pass under or over make for a great photo opportunity.

Besides hiking Ravenna park also offers a very cool playground for little ones and a softball field at one end of the trails.
