4 - 26th Avenue South
This is one of the places in the park that gets surprisingly few
visitors given how pretty it is. It's a peaceful, forested area with a
dense mix of foliage.
Enter the south side of the park between 25th and 26th
Avenues. Walk down to a sunken area about 60 yards from the street,
where you'll find a small but pretty grove of evergreens. The middle
of this grove is a delightful place to set down, shaded by the
surrounding trees with a flat, comfortable bed of pine needles.
This place is somewhat out in the open. But you're
unlikely to be bothered by passersby. Choose a spot that isn't visible
from the street and you should have plenty of privacy. A little bit of
road noise from Lincoln Way is the only downside to this place, but a
small one given how pleasant it is.
