Seward Park sits on a peninsula jutting into Lake Washington. It is a quiet neighborhood with some of the best views of Mount Rainier in Seattle. Beautiful turn of the century homes and large distinctive new homes populate the lakefront ridges while more modest homes are found farther from the water. A small business district on Wilson Avenue includes restaurants, pet supplies and natural foods market. Seward Park is economically and racially diverse. It is the cultural home to Seattle’s Orthodox Jewish community. Seward Park, the neighborhood’s namesake, is its crowning jewel featuring nearly 300 acres of old growth timber, bike and walking trails, art studio, native plant garden, the Environmental and Audubon Center, and an Amphitheater which hosts summer events.
