What to Do at Pritchard Park

The Park is a 50-acre complex with spaces diverse enough to fit a variety of interests. Walk or jog through the 17 acres of well-maintained, forested trails, or take a stroll down the beach overlooking Eagle Harbor. Careful, though: the trails can become very slippery in the winter. The waters of Eagle Harbor are safe for swimming, unless otherwise noted. Don’t forget to check out the Japanese American Internment Memorial, which is under various stages of construction. Watch for the 42 species of birds that have so far been spotted in the Park, or try to spot one of the estimated forty others that also call Pritchard Park their home. The Park also has over forty plant species ranging from a sequoia to native ferns and cedar trees. Clear views of Seattle, Mt. Rainier, and the Cascades are visible on sunny days, and it is always possible to look through the fence and observe the wastewater treatment plant.
